EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Construction for the cloverleaf at the Highway 41 and Lloyd Expressway interchange has begun.

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke kicked off the groundbreaking and says the project will bring new changes to the interchange.

Those changes include two less traffic lights where the roadways intersect, and a multi-use trail that will include a new pedestrian bridge.

The existing pedestrian bridge will be demolished and a new storm sewer will be constructed.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says the Division St. access to the Lloyd will likely be closed most of the time starting October 13.

Hwy 41 will also sometimes be down to one lane from Lincoln to Columbia.

The Lloyd will have lane closures from Garvin to Weinbach.

Night crews will be re-routing traffic near the pedestrian bridge.

"We're going to be inconvienced for a year or so, but I think at the end of the construction period, it's going to be worth it," said Winnecke.

The $19.1-million project is expected to be open to traffic in Fall 2015.

INDOT is encouraging drivers to avoid the area and start looking at other routes while construction is on-going.
