Track maintenance

Interstate highways, Federal routes and state highways are managed and maintained thanks to the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), which is in charge of the construction, conditioning and security of all these communication routes.

The Department of Transportation makes large investments to preserve the condition of the roads in patching work, replacement of bridges and recovery of the infrastructure in general. A fairly high percentage of users rate the condition of the roads as in good condition and structurally efficient.

Illinois is a good representative of what is required in terms of roads for a city as productive as this one. Here are some facts about the major Lake County highways in Indiana.

Interstate 80

It is the second of the longest highways in the United States, surpassed only by I-90; This great communication route travels 4666 kilometers from downtown San Francisco in California to connect with the New York metropolitan area in the northern part, in the city of Teaneck, New Jersey.

This long land route connects the cities of Salt Lake City, Omaha, Des Moines, Chicago and Cleveland. Some of the sections of I-80 are adjacent to the top of the old Lincoln Freeway, as in Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and California.

On the stretch of I-80 through Nevada, it passes through a completely deserted and mountainous region where services are scarce. Upon reaching Utah I-80 crosses the Great Salt Desert, this particular stretch is very slow and distraction-free, conducive to driving fatigue, so it has warning signs about drowsiness.

Interstate 90

It is the interstate highway that crosses the United States from east to west. It is the northernmost and longest road in the country with an incredible 4,992 kilometers in total.

This highway crosses 13 states of the country, including: Washington, passing through Idaho, continuing through Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota; it also continues its course through Minnesota, through Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, ending with Pennsylvania, passing through New York and Massachusetts.

I-90 begins its journey in Seattle, Washington and reaches Route A1 near the Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts, a complete construction site and road. Each of these routes represents a fundamental aspect when it comes to roads, especially for citizens who use them to carry out their work in the different states of the country.
