Nine-Day Westbound Closure Moved to October 27

The upcoming 9-day westbound closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge will begin on October 27.

Westbound I-64 will be closed from 3 a.m. Wednesday, October 27 to 3 a.m. on Friday, November 5.

Prior to the full directional closure crews will strengthen the shoulder pavement on a heavily traveled ramp.

The ramp from I-265 westbound to I-64 westbound will be closed from 11 p.m. Sunday, October 24 to 6 a.m. on Monday, October 25.  The one-night ramp closure will allow crews to safely perform the pavement work.

During the 9-day full directional closure crews will perform deck patching on the westbound deck and approach bridges on the Indiana and Kentucky sides.

While the directional closure is in place, the suggested 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 closure 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.
