The Indiana Department of Transportation announces evening lane restrictions beginning on or around Monday, May 8 as the Fix for 41 project gets under way.
Contractors will begin restricting lanes on U.S. 41 for shoulder widening, construction of a temporary bridge at Cheatham Slough and installation of traffic cameras from the I-69/U.S. 41 interchange to Stratman Road in Henderson, Kentucky. Lane restrictions will close the right lane in either direction in the evening. The time frames are:
• 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday
• 11 p.m. to 9 a.m. on Friday
• 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday
• 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Sunday
During this time, lanes will be restricted to 12-feet. Wide loads will need to take the detour. Northbound wide-load traffic should use Audubon Parkway, U.S. 60 in Owensboro, U.S. 231 and Indiana State Road 66. Southbound wide-loads should use Indiana S.R. 66 (Lloyd Expressway) to U.S. 231, onto U.S. 60 and the Audubon Parkway.
FixFor41 is a collaborative construction project between INDOT and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet that will rehabilitate seven U.S. 41 bridges and the highway pavement between the bridges from near the U.S. 41 interchange with I-69 in Evansville south to the Indiana/Kentucky border. The $25 million project will begin in the spring of 2017 and continue through the summer of 2019. For more information visit fixfor41.indot.in.gov
INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
