U.S. Highway 41 North - Vanderburgh County

U.S. 41 north
U.S. 41 continues north from Green River Island into Vanderburgh County, Indiana on the one-mile approach to Interstate 164 east and Veterans Memorial Parkway west. Photo taken 05/27/11.
A short distance north of the Kentucky state line are the city limits for Evansville. U.S. 41 travels through the heart of the city to Evansville Regional Airport. Photo taken 05/27/11.
A text-based sign resides one quarter mile south of the full-cloverleaf interchange with Interstate 164's southern terminus along U.S. 41 north. Interstate 164 provides a bypass for through traffic to Interstate 64, Interstate 69 north, and U.S. 41 north to Vincennes. Photo taken 05/27/11.
All movements to Interstate 164 east, Veterans Memorial Parkway west and the local ramp to Kentucky Avenue utilize a collector/distributor roadway along the north side of U.S. 41. Photo taken 05/27/11.
Interstate 164 begins here and travels 21.24 miles north to Interstates 64 and 69. Interstate 69 will overtake much of the I-164 freeway from a new Ohio River Bridge, two miles or so to the east, northward to I-64. Photo taken 03/06/12.
A loop ramp follows onto the westbound c/d roadway for Veterans Memorial Parkway west and Kentucky Avenue. The parkway continues the controlled access roadway to Shawnee Drive at Sunset Park. Trucks are prohibited along the route to downtown. Photo taken 05/27/11.
North of the interchange with Interstate 164 and Veterans Memorial Parkway, U.S. 41 enters the city of Evansville (population 117,429). Evansville, Indiana's third largest city, takes up most of the southern part of Vanderburgh County and is the major service and cultural center for the Tri-State metropolitan area that includes Southwest Indiana and part of Kentucky and Illinois. Up ahead is the first of many stoplights along the stretch of U.S. 41 through Evansville at Riverside Drive. Photo taken 03/06/12.

To the east Indiana 66 follows the Lloyd and to the west Indiana 62 is signed along the Lloyd.

To the east, Diamond Avenue heads east for a few blocks before it turns to the south and becomes Weinbach Avenue, a major north-south road that continues all the way to Shawnee Road at the Indiana-Kentucky border. Photo taken 03/06/12.

The Diamond Avenue Expressway is a six-lane highway that crosses the north side of Evansville as it aims northwestward in the direction of New Harmony. The highway is six lanes west to 1st Avenue and four lanes to the Vanderburgh-Posey County line, becoming a two-lane highway for the rest of its journey to the Wabash River. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 north
U.S. 41 returns to a four-lane expressway beyond the interchange with the Diamond Avenue Expressway (Indiana 62 west). The first mileage sign along U.S. 41 in Indiana gives the distances to Princeton (25 miles) and Vincennes (47 miles). Photo taken 03/06/12.
Now coming up to the intersection with U.S. 41 and Lynch Road, which was built as a four-lane arterial to connect U.S. 41 and Interstate 164 (future Interstate 69) to provide some traffic relief for Morgan Avenue (Indiana 62). Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 becomes a busy four-lane highway as it crosses a railroad track near the intersection with Lynch Road. Eventual plans call for U.S. 41 to be expanded to six lanes from the Diamond Avenue (Indiana 66) interchange north to Mt. Pleasant Road. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 crosses the Indiana Southern Railroad to the north of the Lynch Road intersection. U.S. 41 passes through a general industrial area as it heads north out of the urbanized part of Evansville. Photos taken 03/06/12.

Indiana 57 begins its 80-mile journey here to the northeast through Oakland City, Petersburg and Washington to its northern end at U.S. 231 in Worthington. The new Interstate 69 follows its path from Interstate 64 north to northern Daviess County, potentially leading to its truncation in certain parts, but for now the route remains as it is. The main terminal to the Evansville Regional Terminal is off of Indiana 57 to the east of U.S. 41. Photo taken 03/06/12.
North of the intersection with Indiana 57, U.S. 41 is 22 miles from Princeton and 44 miles from Vincennes. Photo taken 03/06/12.
Now coming up to the next intersection along U.S. 41 with Mt. Pleasant Road. Photo taken 03/06/12.
North of Mt. Pleasant Road, U.S. 41 starts to transition into a semi-rural environment as it enters the northern suburbs of Evansville. The northern half of Vanderburgh County has grown in the past decade as suburban growth from Evansville has followed U.S. 41 north toward Gibson County, bringing more traffic to the route. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 approaches the intersection with Hillsdale Road, which goes for two miles to the east to Browning Road, which heads southeast to the community of McCutchanville. Photo taken 03/06/12.

U.S. 41 approaches the intersection with Baseline Road. To the southeast of this intersection is the new North High School, which moved from the north side of Evansville to this new site in northern Vanderburgh County to serve the growing population in this part of the county. Photo taken 03/06/12.
North of the Baseline Road intersection, a view of a 2/10th reference mile marker for U.S. 41. The mile markers can be found along U.S. 41 in Vanderburgh County as well as Indiana 62 and 66 and Interstate 164 in the Evansville area. Photo taken 03/06/12.
A special mileage sign on U.S. 41 gives the distances to Interstate 64 (2 miles) and Indiana 64 (15 miles). The sign helps motorists ensure that they find the correct Highway 64 since the two highways follow close to each other across Southern Indiana.
This sign was removed by May 2012. Photo taken 03/06/12.
Stacer Road heads west from U.S. 41 to the community of Stacer. Photo taken 03/06/12.

U.S. 41 sees a number of traveler services on both sides of its interchange with Interstate 64, which is a half mile away from this point. In Indiana, Interstate 64 goes for 123 miles from the Wabash River east to the Falls City area around Louisville, finally crossing over the Sherman Minton Bridge across the Ohio River.
