TRAFFIC ALERT: Closure of Weinbach & Division intersection closed

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The intersection of Weinbach Avenue at Division Street is now closed to install a storm sewer.

The detour will follow Franklin Street, Boeke Road and Walnut Street.

INDOT says local traffic will have access up to the sewer work, but after that point, all lanes will be closed and no traffic will be allowed.

Division west of Weinbach will remain open to local traffic only.

Entrance and exit ramps from the Lloyd Expressway to Weinbach will stay open, but turns will be limited:

  • The eastbound entrance and exit ramps will only connect with Weinbach south of the Lloyd Expressway
  • The westbound exit ramp to Weinbach may only be able to turn one direction- north or south - depending on what work is being done at the time

INDOT says Weinbach is anticipated to reopen later this year or early in 2015.

When construction is complete on the new cloverleaf interchange at the Lloyd Expressway and US 41, storm runoff will be collected in dry retention ponds inside the loop ramps and go into a new storm sewer pipe along Division.
