Drones to buzz over Lloyd Expressway this weekend

John Gibson

You may notice drones flying above Evansville’s Lloyd Expressway this weekend. 

In an email, Evansville Police say an engineering firm will use drones to collect data along the Lloyd between Green River Road on the East Side and 9th Avenue on the West Side.

The firm Crawford, Miller, and Tilly, says it’s received permission from the FAA and INDOT to perform the work.

CMT also says it has notified Indiana State Police.

CMT says the goal is to start and finish the work on Saturday, weather permitting.

The company says the work could stretch into Sunday. 

CMT says its crews will deploy “Survey Crew Ahead” signs along the expressway during the data collection.
