(VINCENNES) - The Memorial Bridge, which connects Vincennes to Illinois, will be closing this Fall.

The bridge will be closed for 180 days. INDOT has yet to announce when the bridge will close, but they have established an official detour which follows along state routes.

According to City Engineer John Sprague the biggest concern with the bridge closure is semi traffic. He says If they don't see that the bridge is closed it would be difficult for them to turn around.

Sprague says the official route is from U.S. 41 over to Illinois 150. However, Sprague says the INDOT detour isn't typically used by local traffic.

Preliminary signs for the closure have already been placed.

Sprague says signs for both detours will be posted closer to the date of closure.
