Your Daily Drive for Tuesday, September 16

In Gibson County, work is ramping up on U.S. 41 at Warrenton Road as crews install concrete barriers north of I-64. INDOT says two lanes of 41 remain open in each direction, but the right turn lanes are closed during this first phase of construction. Warrenton is open one lane in each direction, but both left and right turn lanes are shut down. Left turn lanes from 41 to Warrenton Road are still allowed.

This work is part of a larger resurfacing project in Gibson and Vanderburgh counties that includes traffic-flow improvements such as: building a new, dedicated right-turn lane for eastbound Warrenton Road turning south onto U.S. 41, building a new, dedicated right-turn lane for westbound Warrenton Road turning north onto U.S. 41, building a second dedicated left-turn lane for northbound U.S. 41 traffic turning west onto Warrenton Road, extending the dedicated right-turn lane for eastbound Warrenton Road turning south onto U.S. 41, extending the dedicated left-turn lane for southbound U.S. 41 turning east onto Warrenton Road, rebuilding business entrances affected by turn-lane construction, resurfacing and realigning Warrenton Road on either side of U.S. 41 so it lines up better through the intersection and replacing the traffic signal with a modernized device that reflects the new configuration.

In Owensboro, a paving project is underway this week on Frederica Street. The work zone is from the U.S. 60 interchange to Scherm Road. Crews will be in action from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. to help reduce traffic disruptions. Work should be done around mid-October. This is a $450,000 highway improvement project.
