Phase 1 Construction Info
Phase 1 of the Sherman Minton renewal project is set to begin on or after September 13 and last until early to mid-2022. This phase will involve painting, deck replacement on the lower deck and steel repairs as needed while the deck is removed.
One lane will be closed in each direction to create a work zone for the necessary repairs to occur. One eastbound lane will be moved to the upper deck and one eastbound lane will remain on the lower deck. A temporary barrier wall will be used on the upper deck to separate directions of flow and also on the lower deck to protect the work zone.
Temporary crossovers will be constructed in both Indiana and Kentucky to allow one lane of eastbound traffic to move over to the westbound direction.
