WATCH: Pedestrian bridge lifted into place over Lloyd Expressway

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Never was there a better time to "Avoid the Lloyd."

At 9 p.m. Wednesday, INDOT shut down all lanes of the Lloyd Expressway from Vann Avenue to Stockwell Road.

Highway workers installed the pedestrian bridge that connects the State Hospital grounds to the area around the National Guard Armory and the proposed Roberts Park.

They expected it to take 30 minutes, but crews worked quickly and by 9:20 p.m., traffic was moving again.

The walkway itself won't open until October 15.
