Beginning June 3, 2024, portions of the Lloyd Expressway in Evansville, Indiana will be reduced to a single lane of traffic.

$150+ Million Lloyd Expressway Project

In 2023, the Indiana Department of Transportation announced the Lloyd4U initiative. It's a $150+ million investment that includes dozens of improvement projects to make the Lloyd Expressway more driver-friendly - or as INDOT put it "Making the Lloyd Work for You."

Lane Closures Coming to State Road 62

A portion of the improvements to The Lloyd will begin on June 3, 2024, with lane closures to the eastbound lanes. According to a post to Facebook from Indiana State Police Sargent Todd Ringle, the eastbound lanes of the Lloyd will be reduced to one lane between Barker Avenue and the Vanderburgh-Posey County Line.

Shoulder Strengthening Project

According to a release from INDOT via, the closures are to allow for shoulder strengthening as part of the project. They say the work will take about a month, assuming the weather cooperates.

Crews will reinforce the outside shoulders with fresh pavement along S.R. 62 to accommodate future Lloyd4U traffic shifts. Shoulder strengthening will occur in two-mile sections as work progresses eastward to Barker Avenue. This phase of work is expected to take a month to complete, weather permitting.
