A busy bridge in Evansville will be closing for more than 6 months.
The Indiana Department of Transportation says in a news release that contractors will close the southbound bridge on Highway 41 over Pigeon Creek, starting Thursday.
INDOT says crews will rehab the bridge deck and perform maintenance.
Southbound drivers on 41 will exit onto Diamond Avenue, using a temporary two-lane configuration on the exit ramp.
Motorists will have the option to go back onto U.S. 41, after both lanes cross over Pigeon Creek, or exit onto Diamond.
