Commuters traveling through northwest Indiana may have to find another way to get around for the next six weeks.A four-mile stretch of Cline Avenue has been closed between Calumet Avenue in Hammond and Michigan Avenue in East Chicago.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says they decided to close the bridge there after an inspection found there was significant corrosion of the bridge. Transportation officials will now re-inspect the bridge area to make sure it's safe.
