Major Traffic Pattern Shift at U.S. 41 and Diamond Avenue

(October 4, 2018) The Indiana Department of Transportation will shift the traffic pattern on U.S. Highway 41 at Diamond Avenue due to a bridge closure for repair work.

Beginning Thursday Oct. 4, 2018, contractors will close the truss bridge spanning Pigeon Creek in the southbound lanes of U.S. 41. The closure is for scheduled repairs, including deck rehab and scheduled maintenance to the truss structure. During this time, the bridge will be closed to traffic.

Motorists travelling south on U.S. 41 will need to exit onto Diamond avenue, using a new, temporary two-lane configuration on the exit ramp. Motorists will have the option to go straight back onto U.S. 41 with both lanes once crossing over Pigeon Creek. The right lane of the ramp will also serve as an exit onto Diamond Avenue. Northbound traffic will not be affected as a part of this closure and work is scheduled to last until June 2019.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
