New ramps opening at Lloyd and 41

Apr 21, 2015

Drivers will get a taste of new pavement at the Lloyd Expressway and Highway 41, starting Wednesday.

INDOT says traffic on three ramps in the construction zone will move to new pavement: both southbound 41 ramps to the Lloyd and the westbound Lloyd ramp to northbound 41.

A news release from the agency says drivers should be alert and “merge early” for the new ramps, which will be in new locations.

INDOT also urges drivers to obey the yield sign that will be posted at the bottom of the new southbound 41 ramp to the eastbound Lloyd.

The Indiana Department of Transportation is planning a public hearing, less than one month after a crash at a Spencer County intersection that killed a retired school principal. 

INDOT says in a news release that officials will gather public input about the south junction of U.S. Highway 231 and State Road 62, near Dale, where 60-year-old Susan Grundhoefer died December 28th.

Officials say there have been seven fatal crashes in a four-year period at that intersection.

I-164 changing to I-69

I-1-64 will soon be a thing of the past, sort of.

The highway is getting a new name.

INDOT crews and contractors will soon replace Interstate 164 signs in Vanderburgh and Warrick counties with new Interstate 69 signage.

The highway will become the southern leg of the I-69 project in Indiana.

INDOT says the conversion will update about 70 large signs at or near exits and the smaller, blue signs posted at bridges and every two tenths of a mile.
