Ind. Toll Road bans some trucks because of winds

GRANGER, Ind. (AP) — The company that runs the Indiana Toll Road is temporarily banning some trucks from using the highway because of high winds.

Toll Road officials have banned all triple trailers and long double trailers, excluding steel haulers, from using the northern Indiana highway from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for northern Indiana until 7 p.m. Monday. The weather service says an intense low pressure system will produce sustained winds of 30 mph with gusts of more than 45 mph.

The weather service says the winds might make it difficult to drive high-profile vehicles. It also says the high winds could knock down some weak tree limbs and knock out power.
