New traffic barriers on westbound Lloyd at US 41

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A temporary lane closure caused more than the usual traffic tie-up Wednesday on the westbound Lloyd Expressway at US 41.

Crews were putting temporary traffic barriers in place because paving will begin over the next few weeks.

INDOT says the elevation difference between the new and old pavement may be up to three feet in places.

The barriers have all been installed and INDOT says the lane that was closed will be open in time for the evening rush.
