Are you ready? Total Solar Eclipse on Monday, April 8

Safety tips from INDOT regarding the upcoming eclipse

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/2 p.m. CDT. Other parts of Indiana will experience a partial eclipse of at least 90 percent totality from approximately 1:30 p.m. EDT/12:30 p.m. CDT to 4:30 EDT/3:30 CDT.

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. Click each image below to view a short video with tips on how to get ready.
