MUNSTER, Ind. (September 4, 2023) – Ridge Road will be closed in Munster, Indiana near the Manor Avenue intersection from Tuesday, September 5 through Wednesday, September 13.
The full closure is due to construction work on the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District’s (NICTD) West Lake Corridor project.
The eight-day closure will likely increase traffic on Wentworth Avenue in Lansing. According NICTD, the official eastbound detour to avoid the closure is south on Wentworth, east on 45th Street, and north on Calumet Avenue back to Ridge.
The West Lake Corridor will connect to the existing South Shore Line train system, and will run from Hammond to Dyer, with a stop in Munster.
