Hundreds of thousands of eclipse viewers will flock to Indiana as the first total solar eclipse in seven years makes its way across the Hoosier State on Monday, April 8.

The eclipse will be visible over a large portion of the state, with the path of totality spanning from Evansville to the outskirts of Fort Wayne around 3 p.m. EDT. Other parts of Indiana will experience a partial eclipse of at least 90 percent totality from approximately 1:30 p.m. EDT to 4:30 EDT.

To ensure smooth travel, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), Indiana State Police (ISP) and Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) urge drivers to plan ahead and prepare for potential travel impacts before, during, and after the eclipse.

INDOT will limit road closures and restrictions where possible on state routes to help with traffic flow surrounding the eclipse. View current construction and maintenance activities on INDOT’s TrafficWise map ( or the free mobile app.
