U.S. 33 Work Is Slowing Traffic

Commuters will have to watch out for closed lanes along U.S. 33 between Goshen and Elkhart while repairs are made on the road. Sections of U.S. 33 between County Road 15 and Chicago Avenue are being patched up and crews are closing one of the road’s four lanes at a time. It’s part of an INDOT project that had been planned ahead and was not a direct result of the winter weather from last year. McCurdy said work began on Monday, but it is not clear when it will wrap up. Though the commute may be slower, the road will NOT completely shut down. Another part of U.S. 33, from U.S. 20 stretching south about a quarter of a mile, will be repaved later this year.
