Sunday Night I-64 Bridge Update

The Sherman Minton Bridge remains closed to traffic on Interstate 64, as officials work to finalize repair and reopening plans.

The project team will provide a more detailed timeline for the repair schedule Monday, including estimates for when traffic will be restored on I-64.

The bridge, which has been undergoing a long-term repair and rehabilitation project, was closed late last week after crews identified needed repairs to a bearing and pier that support the upper deck of the Kentucky approach. The problem was not previously visible.

Until repairs are complete, motorists are advised to use alternate routes and designated detours. 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, notifying motorists of the closure and alternate route.
