Falling Concrete Impacts Highway Traffic in Henderson

A section of SB Hwy 41 and the overpass on Hwy 60 have been closed in Henderson.

Posted: Sep 3, 2021 6:53 PM

Henderson Police are encouraging drivers to avoid southbound Highway 41, near exit 15B.

Traffic is being routed off the highway at that exit.

The fire department has also reported that the Highway 60 overpass at that location has also been closed.

Both traffic alerts are related to falling concrete. Friday afternoon, fist-sized chunks of concrete fell off the overpass and into the southbound lanes of 41.

According to the police department, drivers can expect those closures to last until at least 10 p.m., Friday night.

During that time crews will be assessing the damage and safety of those two roadways.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
