MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — Interstate 94 will remain shut down in northwest Indiana until further notice because of treacherous conditions in the area, according to Indiana State Police.

I-94 was closed in both directions Sunday evening from Michigan City to the Illinois state border.  That is about a 40-mile stretch.

The closure was caused by multiple slide-offs.  Police say plow trucks are currently unable to get to the area because of the traffic congestion.
