    Highway shutdown about 2 miles W of the IN state line in Ohio. At least 2 semis, heard 3 on the radio. About 200 yards away from it and stuck, stopping to eat gonna cost me a day at home...

    Too bad you didn't know earlier. Cutting through Richmond is not that bad, push come to shove, although with all the other detour traffic, it might not be such a great option unless you know the road will be shut down for long time. All you gotta do is get up to US-40

    Happened when I was too close to flip the median and head back east to exit 10. I don't know why these guys behind me aren't, if there was ANY chance I'd jump all over it. Close enough to it to see everything going on, helicopter on the road now...
