JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind.-- The construction continues and with that comes more road closures. The latest blocked streets are in Jeffersonville and they aren't temporary changes.

Cassandra Taylor takes 7th Street every day. Starting Monday, it will be closed from Missouri Avenue to Broadway. The same with the VFW Boulevard from 7th Street to 9th Street.

A spokesperson for the Ohio River Bridges Project, Mindy Peterson, says after the bridge is built, these pathways will not exist anymore. 

Beginning Monday motorists will need to find a new route.

"We can't get to the expressway. We are going to have to go all the way down there and all the way back around," said Taylor.

Drivers are now forced to take a permanent detour and Taylor, like many others, will deal with a few extra minutes on her commute.

"It's still a headache trying to fight 10th street," Taylor said.
