Traffic bound for the Evansville Regional Airport (EVV) is directed to use Indiana 57 north from the following intersection. Photo 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 supercedes 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. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 at the intersection with Indiana 57 north. The main terminal to the Evansville Regional Terminal is off of Indiana 57 nearby. Photo taken 03/06/12.

Industrial uses line U.S. 41 in the vicinity of the Evansville Regional Airport (EVV) and points south. U.S. 41 becomes a busy four-lane highway as it crosses a railroad track ahead of the intersection with Lynch Road. Eventual plans call for U.S. 41 to be expanded to six lanes from the Mt. Pleasant Road intersection to the Diamond Avenue (Indiana 66) interchange. Photos 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) to the south. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 meets Lynch Road on the north side of Evansville. From here, the highway enters the urbanized part of Evansville in earnest. Photo taken 03/06/12.
South of the Lynch Road intersection, an exit ramp turns off of U.S. 41 south for the Diamond Avenue Expressway (Indiana 66). The Diamond Avenue Expressway is a six-lane highway that crosses the north side of Evansville, aiming toward the northwest in the direction of New Harmony on the Wabash River. The highway is six lanes west to 1st Avenue and four lanes to the Vanderburgh-Posey County line, with the remainder existing as a two-lane highway. Photo taken 03/06/12.
The southbound lanes of U.S. 41 utilize a truss bridge over Pigeon Creek. The bridge was built in 1940 and likely will be replaced if the U.S. 41 widening project ever happens. To the right, the ramp from U.S. 41 south to the Diamond Avenue Expressway (Indiana 66) continues. South of the expressway, the ramp continues as Fares Avenue, which follows the original routing of U.S. 41 through Evansville. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 south & Indiana 66 east
On the other side of the Diamond Avenue Expressway (Indiana 66) overpass, Indiana 66 east joins U.S. 41 south. Indiana 66 goes for 155 miles from New Harmony east toward Evansville, Newburgh, Rockport and Tell City before ending at U.S. 150 in Washington County. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 & Indiana 66 east comprise a six-lane expressway through the heart of Evansville. This scene looks at the concrete highway approach to the Maxwell Avenue turn off. Photo taken 03/06/12.
At the upcoming intersection with Morgan Avenue, Indiana 62 west joins U.S. 41 south & Indiana 66 east. Indiana 62 takes off to the east along Morgan Avenue across the northeast side of Evansville toward Interstate 164 and the Warrick County seat of Boonville. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 south & Indiana 62 west and 66 east
Indiana 62 west joins U.S. 41 & Indiana 66 east beyond Morgan Avenue. Indiana 62 travels 228 miles from the Wabash River near Mt. Vernon east through Evansville, Boonville, Dale, Corydon, Jeffersonville and Madison before ending at Indiana 262 in Dillsboro. Photo taken 03/06/12.
Access is controled along U.S. 41 south, Indiana 62 west & Indiana 66 east south of Morgan Avenue. Fares Avenue, one block to the west, follows the pre-expressway routing of U.S. 41 through Evansville. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 south, Indiana 62 west & Indiana 66 east have an intersection next with Columbia Avenue, which heads west past Deaconess Hospital and St. Joseph Avenue via Delaware Street. Photo taken 03/06/12.
South of Columbia Avenue, the trio make their way to the intersection with Virginia Street. Photo taken 03/06/12.
Virginia Street ventures west across the central part of Evansville toward St. Joseph Avenue. To the south of this intersection, U.S. 41 enters a partial-cloverleaf interchange with the Lloyd Expressway, a major six-lane highway that crosses Evansville from east to west. Traffic heading toward Downtown Evansville should use the Lloyd Expressway to the west. Photo taken 03/06/12.
Indiana 66 east and Indiana 62 west depart U.S. 41 south for the Lloyd Expressway. Both routes follow the Lloyd, but in opposite directions.
The partial-cloverleaf interchange is slated to become a cloverleaf interchange with construction starting in 2014. Traffic heading to the University of Southern Indiana should use the Lloyd to the west side of Evansville to that university's campus. Traffic heading toward Roberts Stadiums should do nothing since the now-defunct facility is slated for demolition. Photo taken 03/06/12.
U.S. 41 south
U.S. 41 returns to a four-lane expressway beyond the Lloyd Expressway (Indiana 62 & Indiana 66) interchange. Walnut Street heads west from the next traffic light toward Downtown Evansville. Photo taken 03/06/12.

Traffic heading for Casino Aztar and the Evansville Visitors Center in Downtown Evansville should use the ramp for the Veterans Memorial Parkway to the west. Photos taken 03/06/12.
The westbound ramp to Veterans Memorial Parkway leads toward downtown Evansville along the Ohio Riverfront and Kentucky Avenue, a local north-south street. Photo taken 05/27/11.
Loop ramps along the south side of U.S. 41 come together without a c/d roadway, resulting in some weaving traffic, especially for trucks bound south for Henderson, Kentucky from Interstate 164 west. Interstate 164 east provides a direct route to Interstates 64 and 69 north of Newburgh. Photo taken 11/07/11.
Still within the junction of Interstate 164 east, southbound truckers are advised of a weigh station 1.25 miles to the south in Henderson County, Kentucky. Photo taken 11/07/11.
A pair of bridges built in 1972 and reconstructed in 1985 span Eagle Creek ahead of the on-ramp from Kentucky Avenue and Veterans Memorial Parkway east. Photo taken 11/07/11.
The stretch of U.S. 41 from Interstate 164 south to the beginning of the Pennyrile Parkway can be quite congested due to the number of businesses abutting the roadway, traffic lights and truck traffic. Photo taken 11/07/11.

The final southbound reassurance shield for U.S. 41 precedes Waterworks Road and the state line. Green River Island, while north of the Ohio River, is a part of the Bluegrass State. Photo taken 11/07/11.
Superstructure of the Twin Bridges come into view as U.S. 41 crosses the Kentucky state line at Green River Island. The aforementioned weigh station follows. Photo taken 11/07/11.
A view of the Bi-State Vietnam Gold Star Twin Bridges that U.S. 41 uses to span the Ohio River into Henderson County, Kentucky. The twin bridges, typically called the "twin bridges" by locals, were built in 1932 (northbound span) and 1966 (southbound span) and connect the larger Evansville area with Henderson to the south. Among the crossings between Indiana and Kentucky, these are the only bridges that cross the Ohio River solely in Kentucky. A new bridge for Interstate 69 will be built to the east of these bridges to provide a second crossing between the two communities. However there is no timetable for the construction of the new (and presumably toll) bridge. Photo taken 03/06/12.
