ROMNEY, Ind. (WLFI) – The holiday weekend is here and that means drivers are hitting the road. But those drivers were causing some delays on the I-65 detour Friday evening.

Traffic was backed up in the southbound lanes of U.S. 231, going into Romney. Drivers were waiting on the temporary light installed at U.S. 231 and State Road 28.

There were also some delays on State Road 28, again going into Romney.

Around 4:00 p.m., Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a crash on State Road 28 and that also disrupted the flow of traffic. The scene was cleared by 5:15 p.m.

State police were expecting the added traffic this weekend. They want to remind drivers to be patient and cautious.
