Phase 1 Construction Info
Phase 1 of the Sherman Minton Renewal project began September 13 and lasted until late 2022. This phase involved design and materials procurement, along with painting, deck replacement on the lower deck and steel repairs as needed while the deck was removed.
One lane was closed in each direction to create a work zone for the necessary repairs to occur. One eastbound lane was moved to the upper deck and one eastbound lane remained on the lower deck. A temporary barrier wall was used on the upper deck to separate directions of flow and also on the lower deck to protect the work zone.
Temporary crossovers were constructed in both Indiana and Kentucky to allow one lane of eastbound traffic to move over to the westbound direction.
