Lincoln Memorial Bridge in Vincennes

to Close for Rehabilitation


KNOX COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a closure for the Illinois border bridge on State Road 441 in Vincennes.


On or after March 21, construction crews from Beaty Construction, Inc. will begin a full closure of the Lincoln Memorial Bridge connecting Vincennes to Westport, Illinois. The $3.2 million project is a scheduled rehabilitation of the historical structure to include cleaning, painting, joint sealing, façade repair and a pavement overlay. Crews began work this winter on the first phase of the bridge rehabilitation project, installing erosion control devices on the columns in the Wabash River.


The bridge is expected to be closed for about six months depending upon weather conditions. During the project motorists should use the official detour of Illinois 33, U.S. 50 and U.S. 41.


About the Bridge 

The Lincoln Memorial Bridge is a historical structure that is a part of the George Rogers Clark National Park in Vincennes. It was built in 1931 by builder/contractor Ferguson Construction of Rockford, Illinois and engineering and design company Bennett, Parsons, and Frost of Chicago, Illinois.  In 1925, the Indiana legislature appropriated $2 million for a memorial to George Rogers Clark on the site of Fort Sackville in 1927, and the sponsors of the memorial urged that the new bridge harmonize with the memorial.


INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews. For construction updates and traffic alerts, follow INDOT on Facebook at and Twitter, or access INDOT’s TrafficWise website at
