Nightime closure on Twin Bridges next week

Sep 15, 2017

Traffic on the Twin Bridges will become more restricted during the overnight hours, starting next week. 


The Indiana Department of Transportation says contractors will shut down the southbound bridge between Evansville and Henderson from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. as part of the ongoing Fix for 41 Project.

INDOT says in a news release that crews will begin pavement overlay on the southbound span, requiring the bridge to be closed.

The operation is expected to take about a week depending on weather conditions.

Jan 4, 2017

The first accumulating snow of the season for the Evansville area is expected Thursday.

The National Weather Service says an upper-level storm system will produce a swath of light snow, reaching the I-64 corridor of southern Illinois early Thursday.

Forecasters say the bulk of the accumulating snow should fall during the morning hours in the Evansville area.

The weather service is predicting one-to-two inches in the Tri-State.

It’s expected to taper off from west to east Thursday afternoon.

Drivers on the West Lloyd in Evansville may notice signs advising trucks to move to the left lane. 

INDOT hopes to remove those signs soon.

The signs on the Eastbound Lloyd Expressway just before the Pigeon Creek Bridge and just before the Fulton Avenue overpass read “Trucks Use Left Lane on Bridge.”

INDOT’s Jason Tiller tells WNIN that the signs are precautionary, as crews check a recent temporary fix to the bridge’s bearing pads under the span.
