Covington Road will be closed to all traffic at the bridge over Interstate 69 for bridge replacement from 8 a.m. Thursday until November. The work will be performed by Primco for the Indiana Department of Transportation.

A detour will use Hadley Road, Indiana14/Illinois Road and Scott Road. Traffic is encouraged to avoid the area and use alternate routes.

INDOT planned the work to begin in 2012, which had an estimated cost in December 2009 of $4.2 million to widen and replace the bridge said by an INDOT spokeswoman to be functionally obsolete. The project was to widen the two-lane span to incorporate a 10-foot bike and pedestrian trail.
