EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The northbound driving lane of I-69 at the 15-mile marker in the Evansville area is closed.

Officials with the Indiana Department of Transportation said there is a small patch of failing concrete.

They say the lane will be closed until further notice.

Officials say crews are working on a plan to fix the issue, but no timeline is currently in place on when the lane will be reopened.

INDOT tells 14 News its engineers believe the joints in the concrete have failed, leaving holes and gaps in the driving lane.

We are told this is not a problem that local crews are able to fix in-house, so officials are considering an emergency contract to get it repaired as soon as possible.

The passing lane is still open.
