With winter weather already making travel difficult, River City drivers will now have to deal with lane closures on First Ave. 

Near the 2100 block of First Ave., a water main broke and has caused both northbound lanes on First Ave. to be shut down.

The lane closure is just south of Diamond Ave and is near the First Avenue Car Wash and the Evansville Youth Football field.

Detour routes will be marked using Morgan Ave. to Heidelbach Ave. to Diamond Ave. and west back to First Avenue, and using Uhlhorn St. west to Fulton Ave., north to Diamond, and east back to First Ave.

Currently, there are no estimations as to when First Ave. will be fully reopened.
