Short-Term I-64 Lane Restriction Scheduled for Deck Pour

The Sherman Minton Renewal team will be pouring concrete on the lower deck for eastbound I-64 during the evening of February 24 through February 25, weather permitting.

The right lane of eastbound I-64 (lower deck) will be closed on or after 9 p.m. on February 24. The lane closure will remain in effect until about 6 p.m. on February 25, or until the completion of concrete pouring activities. If weather prevents activities on February 24, the lane restriction will be implemented on March 3.

Eastbound I-64 traffic will still be permitted across the top deck of the Sherman Minton Bridge. The eastbound I-64 exit ramp to New Albany will remain open. Access to I-64 eastbound from New Albany will be closed as will eastbound I-64 access to I-264.

Delays are expected and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes where possible.
