Evansville road crew prepares for hot weather

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The road crew working the U.S. 41 and Lloyd Expressway interchange project is taking extra precaution in the heat.

Ragle Construction's Tom Redmon says the company always provides coolers of water, but during the heat advisory, they're offering up Gatorade too.

They're asking everyone to drink a 16-ounce bottle an hour. 

There's an ice chest on site and an air-conditioned office for anyone showing signs of heat illness. 

We're told workers can take breaks whenever they need them. 

So far, there have been no heat-related illnesses reported.
