LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A contractor for INDOT is expected to start working on State Road 111 on Monday to help with embankments that are sliding into the Ohio River.

The highway began to crack near Horseshoe Southern Indiana and Two Mile Lane after recent flooding. 

Cones were already put in place to keep drivers away from the cracks, and they've moved lanes to the opposite shoulder. 

INDOT officials said weather forced crews to wait days to start the project. 

Crews are expected to start work on Monday, unless they get washed out, according to INDOT officials.  

Officials say the work is expected to last up to three weeks, and a temporary signal will be put up while crews work to fix the road.

Once work is done on one side, they will move closer to the casino where they will fix another side. 

INDOT officials said crews are working to figure out a more permanent fix for the road, and are considering moving part of the highway away from the river.
