Meetings will include preliminary designs and updated maps
Two public meetings will be held this month, one in-person and one virtual, to share updated information for TheLloyd4U. More than a dozen improvement projects are planned along the Lloyd Expressway, from Posey County Line Road to Cross Pointe Boulevard.
The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to invest more than $100 million to make the Lloyd Expressway more efficient and safer for motorists to navigate. The work will include intersection improvements, bridge replacements, pavement replacement and more.
The public meetings will include preliminary designs, an overview of alternative intersections and a chance to share feedback. The in-person meeting will also offer the opportunity to talk one-on-one with members of the Project Team and view detailed maps.
The improvement projects are designed to reduce conflict points, enhance traffic flow and improve safety. Activities have included survey work, traffic analysis, preliminary maintenance of traffic plans and road design.
An in-person public meeting will be held 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29 and will include a presentation from the Project Team.

Two Phases, One Project
While the improvement projects are divided into two phases, they’ll be let as one project with one contractor. Letting as a single project will lead to improved coordination and anticipated efficiencies during construction.
Phase One extends from Rosenberger Avenue to Cross Pointe Boulevard. Phase Two extends from Posey County Line Road to Rosenberger Avenue. The project is expected to let in fall 2023 with construction expected to begin in spring 2024.
The Project Team is continuing to gather feedback, analyze data and complete preliminary designs and environmental impacts. A public hearing for Phase 1 is expected this summer. The hearing will include public comment that is part of a formal comment period.
Another public meeting for Phase 2 is expected this fall to share more detailed preliminary design information.
TheLloyd4U includes more than a dozen improvement projects along the Lloyd Expressway. The projects extend from one end of Vanderburgh County to the other, from Posey County Line Road to Cross Pointe Boulevard.
