Oct 3, 2018

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.

Some Evansville city councilmembers are concerned about an Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) draft of suggestions to improve, but the council denied a resolution calling for public hearings about the highway’s future at its Monday night meeting.

Councilwoman Missy Mosby introduced the resolution because she’s concerned over what she sees as a lack of public input in INDOT’s long-term plans for the expressway.

A ribbon-cutting at 3 p.m. Friday in Threshermans Park will mark the opening of a long-awaited road near Boonville. 

Steve Law owns a car dealership on State Road 62 just west of the Boonville city limits. He sees the new Boonville Bypass when he stands in the lot of Law Chevrolet Buick.

But that’s not all he sees.

"Honestly anytime we see growth in Boonville and Warrick County as a business owner gets us really excited," he said.
