EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - There’s a traffic alert in Evansville for a big construction project set to begin on First Avenue.

As an $8 million water main project gets going, crews will be installing over 8,000 feet of water lines.

Drivers could see lane restrictions throughout the year from Colonial to Morgan Avenue.

The goal of this project is to increase the water supply to the northern area of the distribution system and provide improvements.
