PORTAGE, Ind. (AP) An Indiana Toll Road official said the privately operated highway has begun a two-year, $200 million rehabilitation project that will be its largest single project since its construction in 1954.

Zach Hurst of ITR Concession Co. told a Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission committee that the first lane closures are scheduled to begin April 4 on the 73-mi. project from Lake Station to Elkhart.

The (Munster) Times reported the project involves removing existing asphalt, treating the concrete base to hinder future cracking, and pavement with 5 in. of new asphalt. Ramps and some shoulders will be repaved and bridges will be rehabilitated and, in some cases, widened.
