Nine Day Westbound Closure Scheduled

A 9-day directional closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge is scheduled to begin October 25.

Westbound I-64 will be closed from 3 a.m. Monday, October 25 to 3 a.m. on Wednesday, November 3.

The full directional closures will allow crews to perform deck patching on approach bridges from the Indiana and Kentucky sides and safely access the entire westbound deck.

While the directional closures are in place, the preferred alternate route will be I-65 and I-265. Regional traffic signs and variable message boards will be posted in the project area well in advance, notifying motorists of the closures and alternate route.

As part of the maintenance of traffic approach for construction, the design-build contractor team is allowed one 9-day closure of the bridge per year in each direction and must provide a 28-day notice for the public to plan accordingly.
