ELKHART — Commuters driving on Lincolnway East may have to find an alternative route for the next few months while crews work on replacing a bridge.

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced it will close Lincolnway, also known as S.R. 933 or Old U.S. 33 west of County Line Road, starting Monday, April 8, weather permitting, according to a press release from INDOT.

Crews will replace bridge that goes over Baugo Creek, which is located between County Line Road and Capital Avenue. The new bridge is expected to open by the end of 2013.

A detour will take traffic going east on Lincolnway East north on Capital Avenue, east on McKinley Highway, south on County Line Road and back to Lincolnway. Traffic going west will travel north on County Line Road, west on McKinley Highway, south on Capital Avenue and back to Lincolnway, according to the press release.
