LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Drivers will have to deal with the construction detour on the Sagamore Parkway bridge over the Wabash River a little while longer.

As WLFI previously reported in early April, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) closed the westbound lanes of the bridge.

According to INDOT spokesperson Debbie Calder, the work originally scheduled to finish in early August will now last until late August. Calder said above average rainfall is to blame for the construction delay.

In November of last year, INDOT finished constructing a new eastbound bridge after more than two and a half years.
