Highway 41 North of I-64 to Temporarily Close Tuesday Afternoon For Cross-Country Motorcycle Riders
If you plan on travelling north on Highway 41 into Gibson County and beyond from Vanderburgh County Tuesday afternoon around 3:15, you may want to find a different route.
The Indiana State Police (ISP) announced Monday morning "several hundred" motorcycles will be passing through the on their way to Washington D.C. as part of the "Run for the Wall" ride. A nearly 3,000 mile, 10-day pilgrimage to the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
According to the ISP, the bikes are expected to rumble into the Tri-State around 3:15 p.m. on I-64, and will exit onto Highway 41 for a pit stop at the Flying J truck stop on the corner of 41 and Warrenton Road. State troopers will shut down both the north and southbound lanes of 41 from Warrenton to just south of the I-64 cloverleaf to help make sure the riders arrive safely. All lanes will be reopened temporarily once all the bikes are off the interstate, then closed again around 4:00 p.m. to allow the bikes to get back on the interstate and continue their ride.
You are more than welcome to arrive early to pay your respect to the riders, however the ISP asks that you park in a safe area and walk as parking along the I-64 is not allowed.
