Directional Closure Scheduled for Sherman Minton Bridge

The Sherman Minton Renewal team has scheduled an eastbound directional I-64 closure to begin May 6.  Eastbound I-64 will close at or after 3 p.m. on Monday, May 6, and will remain closed until 5 a.m. on Monday, May 20. The closure period is necessary for crews to finish concrete work on the lower bridge approaches.

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

Through traffic that bypasses I-265 will not be able to cross the Sherman Minton bridge. This traffic will be required to exit onto West 5th Street in New Albany and use the local street system to access I-64 westbound, then continue to I-265 and the designated alternate route.

Westbound I-64 traffic will be permitted to cross the bridge and all westbound ramps, including I-264 to I-64 westbound, will remain open and accessible.
