VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announced a full closure for a ramp at the I-69 interchange at Veterans Memorial Parkway between Evansville and Henderson.

Beginning on or around Monday, April 13, contractors will close the I-69 ramp coming north from Veterans Memorial Parkway going south to Henderson, Kentucky. This ramp will also be closed to southbound traffic coming in from Kentucky Avenue and going to Henderson.
