Westbound Lanes of Evansville’s Riverside Drive Closed Beginning Today
Traffic in along the riverfront in downtown Evansville will be a little more complicated then it already is on Tuesday as lane restrictions take effect while crews complete work in the area in front of Tropicana Casino.
Our media partner, Eyewitness News announced the road work early Tuesday morning on Twitter.
Road restrictions in front of Tropicana, today. Both Riverside westbound lanes will be closed, but one eastbound lane will be open.

The westbound lanes run toward the Lloyd Expressway. With one eastbound lane open, this likely means crews will have someone in place to stop traffic attempting to make its way into downtown Evansville to allow for vehicles looking to get out of downtown Evansville to get through and vice-versa.
Your best best will be to just avoid the area altogether, instead using Northwest 2nd Street to come into or head out of the downtown area.
No announcement has been made regarding how long the restrictions will be in place.
