Lane restrictions will be in place starting today (Monday) for U.S. 41 and U.S. 50 around Vincennes.
The Indiana Department of Transportation says the lane restrictions will be on bridges spanning the C-S-X Railroad Tracks near Old Wheatland Road and at the tri-level bridge at the U.S. 50/41 Interchange. Contractors will be finishing up work from left over from the fall construction season. They will include installation of center line reflectors, rumble strips, pavement markings and painting of bridge components. INDOT says the lane restrictions will be intermittent while work is completed. The work may also require the closure of Old Wheatland Road for short periods of time. During restriction hours, loads over 17 fee wide will need to find an alternated route. The project is expected to be completed by the end of June.
