Bridge Repairs Snarling Traffic in Louisvlle, Southern Indiana

Jul 18, 2012

Transportation officials in Kentucky say unexpected complications in repairs being done to an Ohio River Bridge are causing traffic tie-ups in Louisville and southern Indiana. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokeswoman Andrea Clifford told the Courier-Journal that officials can't delay the work on the Kennedy Bridge because it is so far gone.

Clifford says exit ramps in Kentucky from I-64 and I-71 to I-65 southbound, which goes over the Kennedy, must remain closed. 

In Indiana, exit 0 in Jeffersonville must also remain closed.  Will Wingfield, spokesman for the Indiana Department of Transportation, said reduced lanes on the bridge will continue until the end of the week.
