A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a SOUTHBOUND daytime lane restriction on the US 41 Twin Bridges between Henderson and Evansville starting Tuesday, March 14, 2015.

SOUTHBOUND traffic on the US 41 Twin Bridges will be restricted to one lane to allow steel repairs to the approaches along the Henderson end of the southbound bridge.

This southbound work zone is expected to be in place between 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., each day through Saturday, March 18th. The contractor will then provide an update on the work schedule for the following week.

All traffic in this southbound work zone will move to the left-hand or passing lane. Southbound motorists should be alert for slowing and merging traffic as they approach the bridges. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

Hall Contracting is the prime contractor on this $527,000 steel upgrade to both the southbound and northbound bridge approaches. This project has a target completion date of April 15, 2017.

This steel upgrade work on the bridge approaches is to prepare for a coming deck overlay on the southbound bridge. Another contractor has some guardrail work to complete along the approaches to the US 41 Twin Bridges in coming weeks.
