EVSC Buses Could Be Delayed Due to Construction Wed. & Thurs.
Beginning at 7 a.m. today, Wednesday Oct. 16, INDOT maintenance crews will close all lanes of U.S. from S.R. 62 to Walnut Street as Norfolk Southern Railroad crews work to remove the crossing. The project will require the removal of the rails crossing U.S. 41 and repair of the pavement.
This operation is scheduled for two days depending upon weather conditions. School traffic will be accounted for as a part of this closure, with work scheduled to best accommodate buses and other traffic during the morning peak times. Once the closure is in place, all lanes will be completely closed to through traffic around the clock. The official detour for this closure uses S.R. 62, I-69 and SR 66.
Evansville Vanderburgh County School Corporation want parents to be aware of possible delays for students riding the school bus in the afternoon today and tomorrow. This major road construction project on both lanes of HWY 41 will result in potential traffic delays that may impact school buses. This project may impact buses that normally use HWY 41, as well as all other bus routes in the city due to traffic congestion on streets/roads used for detours.
