The Lloyd4U Project Team shared an update on Wednesday after previously asking the public for feedback on potential closures along the Lloyd Expressway.

Public feedback was given on the potential closures through a short questionnaire that was released back in June.

The project team says the questionnaire received more than 1,500 responses on safety-based closures, with the majority of respondents supporting the idea.

The project team says it's now considering these locations for permanent closure (View Image):

  • S. Ingle Avenue at Lloyd
  • N. Lemcke Avenue at Lloyd
  • N. 12th Street at Lloyd
  • N. 10th Street at Lloyd
  • Pennsylvania Street at Wabash Avenue (Only a closure of the side street of Pennsylvania Street)

In addition to feedback from the public, the Lloyd4U Project Team says it's also evaluating crash data and traffic count information to assist in the decision-making process.

The possible closures are just a small part of the Lloyd4U project as a whole, which includes over a dozen improvement projects planned all the way from the east side of Evansville, Indiana, to the Posey County line.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
