WHITLEY COUNTY – The Indiana Department of Transportation announced the closure of Ind. 14 for a resurfacing project between Whitko Drive and Water Street in South Whitley.

Along with the resurfacing, crews will be working on curbs, drainage structures and the sidewalks.

Work is scheduled to begin on or after April 3, with the closure of Ind. 14 expected to last until mid-June.

During the closure, drivers should use the posted detour of Ind. 5, Ind. 105, Ind. 114 and Ind. 13, or seek an alternate route.
