Traffic Alert: Closure on S. Burkhardt Rd. for emergency sewer repairs

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - There’s another closure on South Burkhardt Road. This one beginning on Wednesday morning.

Evansville Water and Sewer says Burkhardt traffic between Outer Lincoln Avenue and Newburgh Road will be closed beginning at 8 a.m. because of emergency sewer repairs.

The city says the sewer project is related to the Bonnieview and Oak Lift Station Improvements Project.

There will be a detour posted to use Lincoln, Green River Road, and the Lloyd Expressway to get around this, but the city says you’ll want to avoid this area Wednesday.

Officials tell us the road will reopen later in the day.

However, another closure in this area is set to start on Monday. That will impact Lincoln Avenue between Burkhardt and Southfield Drive.

So if you’re out holiday shopping in that area of Evansville’s east side, you’ll want to make a plan.
