Downtown Crossing: 2015 Construction Guide Thursday, Mar 12 2015 

CONSTRUCTION GUIDE DETAILS BUSY SEASON AHEAD

Major work and traffic changes outlined for 2015

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 11, 2015) –  With an accelerated schedule to open the new Downtown bridge early, 2015 promises to be an even busier construction season for the Downtown Crossing portion of the Ohio River Bridges Project.

“We told residents last year to prepare for the busiest construction season in downtown Louisville and Jeffersonville in more than 50 years,” said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Project Manager Andy Barber. “Crews will be even busier this year as we work to put traffic on the new Downtown bridge by January 2016, three months ahead of schedule.”

The accelerated schedule will allow for more extensive improvements that will extend the life of the Kennedy Bridge.

The Downtown Crossing Annual Construction Guide details the major work and significant traffic changes expected this year.

The Construction Guide can be found on the project website, www.kyinbridges.com.

Work Scheduled for 2015

Downtown Louisville

New roadways, ramps and overpasses are being constructed as crews continue the massive job of reconstructing the Kennedy Interchange, untangling the many weaves of Spaghetti Junction where I-65, I-64 and I-71 converge. Two lanes of interstate traffic, in each direction, are being maintained during peak hours throughout the project.

New Downtown Bridge

Work on the new Downtown bridge will be completed this year, with the new bridge carrying traffic by January 2016. All three towers will reach their full heights by this summer. The bridge will rapidly take shape as crews continue to set structural steel, install stay cables and eventually pour the deck.
