Two Directional Closures Scheduled for Sherman Minton Bridge

Weather permitting, in mid-to-late May the Sherman Minton Renewal team will be implementing two directional closures of the Sherman Minton Bridge. The full directional closures will allow crews to work safely as they implement the traffic shift for Phase 3 and begin demolition activities.

Eastbound I-64 will be closed over a weekend from Friday evening until Monday morning.

Westbound I-64 will be closed for nine days.

Neither of the closures will affect Kentucky Derby weekend or Memorial Day weekend.  Additional notification will be shared once dates for these closures are established.
