Evansville, IN (WEHT) INDOT has opened a detour to help drivers crossing the Pigeon Creek bridge near Diamond Ave. after an over-sized truck hit it.

The same type of crossover was put in place last year while crews worked on the bridge on HWY-41.

INDOT officials say they are still working to get a full assessment of the damage done to the bridge to give them an idea of how long repairs are going to take.

Officials expect the cost of repairs to be in the millions of dollars.
