    Officials closed the major thoroughfare on Saturday night to work on the damage left behind by our recent severe winter weather.

    INDOT crews worked to fill potholes on Cline Avenue, also known as Indiana 912, for two days. Crews worked additional weekend hours, despite an exhausting week clearing snow and ice from a storm that kept them them on the roads 24 hours a day for five days in alternating 12-hour shifts.

    A news release from INDOT said freezing and thawing is a recipe for potholes but that crews were continuing their work. The release said the past week saw a 40 to 50 degree change in just over 24 hours. Therefore motorists should watch for more potholes on the roadways.

    Officials hope to have the road reopened by the Monday morning rush hour.
