LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WISH) — Northbound I-65 is closed again in the Lafayette area after concerns about the same bridge that prompted a closure earlier this week.

Indiana Department of Transportation officials said engineers had been monitoring the bridge since it re-opened Wednesday. They saw some movement with the Wildcat Creek bridge, prompting the closure of the bridge.

There was no immediate timeline on the closure.

As of 1 p.m., northbound I-65 was closed and traffic was being diverted off at U.S. 52, which is the 141-mile marker. Once on U.S. 52, drivers should head north for about 17 miles, then turn left on State Road 28. Head west for about 10 miles before turning right on U.S. 231, which will go for about 33 miles before intersecting I-65 in White County.
