GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Indiana Department of Transportation says there are lane restrictions for the U.S. 41 north of Princeton for a bridge rehab project.

Starting Monday, contractors closed one lane of the U.S. 41 bridges spanning the Patoka River just north of State Road 64.

This isn’t the only bit of road work. Just a half-mile south of here, they’re doing more repairs along 41, but we’re told that shouldn’t slow up traffic at all.

Jason Tiller of INDOT says even though you’ll only have one lane, it’ll be a smooth ride.

”You’re not really going to see a whole lot of disruption of traffic. Just occasionally you’re going to have to switch over to the driving or passing lane, depending on which lane they’re in,” explained Tiller.

Crews will do scheduled maintenance and apply a new driving surface.

One lane will be open in each direction while work takes place in the closed lanes.

Once work is completed in the closed lanes, the closure will shift to the previously open lanes.

The project is scheduled to last until mid-June depending upon weather conditions.
