Bridge work causes headache for some

KNOX COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – We have a quick traffic note to pass along for you.

This week, crews are working on the old Cannonball Bridge.

It connects Lawrence County, Illinois to rural Knox County, Indiana over the Wabash River.

The old one-lane bridge is being inspected for routine maintenance.

The problem is, this is the fastest way for people from St. Francisville to get to Vincennes.

Now, people there have to travel through Lawrenceville which adds around 10 minutes to their trip.

Crews are expected to finish the job by the end of the week.
