I-65 Bridge Project Easing Over Holidays

Ohio River Bridges Project

Motorists traveling between Louisville and southern Indiana during the holidays may find driving a little easier with no new interstate or ramp closures planned for the downtown bridge project starting Monday and continuing through Jan. 4.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Project Manager Andy Barber said the break should mean less stress during holiday travel. Barber said officials want to help travelers arrive safely and not be concerned about road construction and closures.

Long-term lane restrictions and closures remain. A list of continuing closures can be foundhere.

Construction crews are to be back at work on Jan. 5.

The new downtown bridge is scheduled to open to two-way traffic in April 2016. Both it and the restored Kennedy Bridge carrying Interstate 65 across the Ohio River will be complete in December 2016.

Joseph Lord is the online managing editor for WFPL.
