The Indiana Department of Transportation announced traffic congestion is expected to occur in southern Indiana before and after the total solar eclipse Monday as Interstate 69 and U.S. 41 and 231 are main arteries motorists will use to get to western Kentucky, where the moon's full eclipse of the sun can be viewed within a 70-mile-wide swatch encompassing Hopkinville, Paducah and Madison, Ky. 

INDOT also urges motorists not to take pictures while driving, don't wear eclipse glasses while driving, don't stop along the interstate or park on the shoulder and do turn on headlights during the eclipse event.
