VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a complete road closure on U.S. 41 to remove the railroad crossing between Virginia Street and the Lloyd Expressway.
Beginning at 7 a.m. local time Monday, Sept. 30, INDOT maintenance crews will close all lanes of U.S. from S.R. 62 to Walnut Street as Norfolk Southern Railroad crews work to remove the crossing. The project will require the removal of the rails crossing U.S. 41 and repair of the pavement.
This operation is scheduled for two days depending upon weather conditions. School traffic will be accounted for as a part of this closure, with work scheduled around the morning peak times. Once the closure is in place, all lanes will be completely closed to through traffic around the clock. The official detour for this closure uses S.R. 62, I-69 and SR 66.
INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
