Project Overview

The major bridge rehabilitation and painting project will significantly extend the service life of the 59-year-old Sherman Minton Bridge. The double-decked bridge carries six lanes of traffic (I-64 and US 150) over the Ohio River, connecting Louisville, KY and New Albany, IN.
This is an extensive rehabilitation project. There are five bridge structures associated with the Sherman Minton crossing. The project scope of work includes replacement or refurbishment of all bridge decks, structural steel elements and hanger cables; new lighting; drainage repairs and painting of the steel components. The long-term repairs, along with normal preventive maintenance, will add up to 30 years of service life to the bridge.
