Weekend and 9-Day Eastbound Closures Scheduled for Sherman Minton Bridge

Reminder: Eastbound I-64 will be closed on or after 10 p.m. on Friday, December 2 to 5 a.m. on Monday, December 5.

Future Eastbound I-64 closures are as follows:

  • I-64 Eastbound will be closed on or after 10 p.m. on Friday, December 9 to 5 a.m. on Monday, December 12.
  • I-64 Eastbound will be closed on or after 4 a.m. on Wednesday, December 14 to 4 a.m. Friday, December 23.

If the closures are delayed for any reason, notification will be distributed identifying new times and dates.

During eastbound I-64 closures, the I-64 eastbound entrance ramp from West Spring Street will be closed along with the I-64 eastbound to I-264 eastbound ramp.

While the eastbound directional closure is in place, 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 well in advance, notifying motorists of the closures and alternate route.

Through traffic that bypasses I-265 will not be able to cross the Sherman Minton bridge.  This traffic will be required to exit onto West 5th Street in New Albany and use the local street system to access I-64 westbound, then continue to I-265 and the designated alternate route.

The project team will continue to share information about the upcoming closures as work progresses and start dates are identified.  More information regarding the allowable closures can be found on the website at https://shermanmintonrenewal.com/traffic-info-closures/.
