GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Indiana State Police shut down parts of US 41 in Gibson County on Tuesday.

That was near Warrenton Road and I-64 eastbound at US 41.

Troopers say several hundred motorcycle riders stopped at the Flying J on Highway 41 and Warrenton Road.

They made a pit-stop as they are making the annual “Run for the Wall” ride from California to Washington D.C. to recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by all veterans who’ve served our country.

Medic, Don Masten says he is always appreciative of the local support and hospitality.

“All the way through the middle part of the country into West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois, the reception is amazing. It really has restored my faith in patriotism in America,” Masten says.

Masten says they typically made three to five stops per day.

They plan to stop Tuesday night in Corydon, Indiana.
