Repairs to Kennedy Bridge to be Completed
Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet say repairs to the Kennedy Memorial Bridge in Louisville should be finished this week, as the project moves into its final phase of construction.
Repair work on the John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge has contributed to traffic congestion and confusion for motorists in the Louisville area for several weeks. Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet say that should come to an end by Wednesday, when all lanes and ramps at the bridge are scheduled to be completed. That schedule is subject to change in the event of inclement weather.
The 18 million dollar construction project is being completed by MAC Construction and Excavating of New Albany, Indiana. Local tourism officials have been hopeful the project could be completed by the first of August, because a National Street Rod Association event starts in the city on August 2nd.
