Starting tomorrow Saturday 5/15/2021 I-70/ I-65 will be closing till fall 2022. You will need to use either 465 south which is the official detour or I-465 North to loop around downtown Indianapolis and rejoin I- on the opposite side.

Same will go for I-65 you will not be able to take it straight through downtown Indianapolis you will have to use the I-465 loop.

Twice a day, my run takes me out to Richmond In off of 70 then back.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

If I remember correctly you're out of Joliet right? That's a nice little run. Been thinking about trying something home daily for awhile now but dont want to be running up and down 294 and 94 all day.

Yeah anyplace around here sucks, 80, 294, 94, 65 sooo much traffic. One day Ill have enough seniority to get a Saint Louis or Des Moines and get away from the craziness.

Very true. I'm parked at the last toll plaza in indiana with 2.5 hrs left on my clock because I'm running recaps and dont feel like wasting 25 minutes in traffic running all of 294 up to Milwaukee this afternoon to get closer to my final. I'll roll through at 2am everytime and deal with the lane closures.

You are better off doing that, at 2 am even with the lane closures you should breeze right through with minimal delays.

I leave my yard at 2 am and can make it to Richmond with little delays coming back on the other hand....

I’m so glad I don’t live in Indy anymore lol. I swear, Indiana is the only state that will spend all summer working on the highways, only to have them worse than when they started.

Good to see you around again, Noob . . . glad you changed your status, at least! If you change your 'name' on here.. we shall ALL be confused, haha!!! Are you still with your original / Millis? (Or did I miss something; wouldn't surprise me.. I sure try hard, y'all!)

Have you looked into FAB Express? Hauls boxes in boxes for Int'l Paper. Husband's been there 5.5 years; home w/rig (if he needs/wants it) daily; off weekends. Straight out of Joliet.

Don (on here) went with them here in Ohio, after CFI OTR .. he needed home time more often, also.

Just an idea; no kickbacks, sorry!!

Any q's my email is easily available. Wish you the best, man!

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
