The first stretch of the Interstate 69 extension in southwestern Indiana is being used as a construction detour.

State police say the detour started Tuesday for traffic heading southbound on Indiana 57 approaching I-64 about 15 miles north of Evansville.

Sgt. Todd Ringle says many drivers didn’t see the warning signs Tuesday morning and had to turn around near where Indiana 57 turns into I-164.

Work began last year on the 2-mile segment of the I-69 extension between Evansville and Indianapolis. The full 142-mile route is estimated to cost to $3.1 billion.
