Additional traffic expected on Lloyd, Hwy-41 because of road closures

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Traffic is a little heavier on the Lloyd and Highway 41 because of two road closures in Evansville.

Police shut down Veterans Memorial Parkway heading into downtown early Tuesday. A section of Riverside Drive is also closed heading away from downtown.

Both of these closures are a sewer project.

Give yourself extra time if you’re headed into downtown Evansville the next few days.

Drivers are exiting at Highway 41 North or taking Kentucky Avenue. To get downtown, you will need to take the Lloyd Expressway or the other part of Riverside Drive.

Cherry Street to Shawnee Street on Riverside Drive will also be shut down.

Detour signs are posted so keep your eyes peeled. The closures are expected to last seven to 10 days.
