Back To Front Page

Ind. 49 will be closed to traffic at the bridge over the Kankakee River--at the Porter/Jasper county line--beginning on Tuesday, April 8.

It will remain closed--between C.R. 1600N and C.R. 1200S, just south of Kouts--through at least early October, the Indiana Department of Transportation said.

Crews will be replacing most components of the bridge, while preserving the historic nature of this original truss structure, built in 1941.

Southbound Ind. 49 traffic will be detoured east on Ind. 8, south on U.S. Highway 421, west on Ind. 10, and back to Ind. 49. Northbound Ind. 49 traffic will be detoured east on State Road 10, north on U.S. 421, west on Ind. 8, and back to Ind. 49.
