Indiana Toll Road closed in both directions due to semi-fire near Lake Station – NBC Chicago

Drivers on the Indiana Toll Road are being asked to seek an alternate route after a semi-fire on Friday night prompted authorities to close the highway in both directions.

Indiana State Police Sergeant Glen Fifield tweeted photos of the fire showing clouds of smoke and at least one half engulfed in flames. All eastbound and westbound lanes of the highway are closed at the 19-mile marker, which is near Lake Station, the sergeant tweeted.

The roadway will be closed indefinitely, he said, urging drivers to use Interstate 94 as an alternate route.
