Traffic Alert: third lane being added to Coal Mine Rd.

GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - A widening project is underway on Coal Mine Road.

Highway department crews tell us the work stretches from Highway 41 to Lincoln Street in Fort Branch. The road in that area is open to westbound traffic only during construction.

Crews say they are adding a third lane to Coal Mine Road in that area to ease drop-off and pickup at fort branch community school.

Work is expected to wrap up around Thanksgiving.
