Temporary Eastbound Lane Closure on Bridge Approach

The eastbound I-64 crossover that takes traffic to the top deck of the Sherman Minton Bridge will be temporarily closed for pavement repair. The left lane closure on I-64 eastbound will begin near mile marker 123, approximately 1,000 feet before the existing traffic crossover.

The I-64 eastbound left lane closure is anticipated to be in place prior to afternoon rush hour on October 7 and last for 24 to 48 hours, or until the repair has been completed.

The remaining eastbound lane to the bottom deck of the Sherman Minton will continue to provide access to all destination routes. The current westbound I-64 lane configurations will not be impacted.

Motorists should anticipate delays on eastbound I-64 while the repairs are being made. Alternate routes should be used where possible. The preferred alternate routes are I-265 and I-65.

About The Sherman Minton Renewal Project

The Sherman Minton Renewal is a major bridge rehabilitation and painting project that will significantly extend the life of the 61-year-old bridge. The double-decked bridge carries six lanes of traffic (I-64 and US 150) over the Ohio River connecting Louisville, KY and New Albany, IN.
