LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Since the closure of the Sherman Minton, many people are asking why officials don't open the old K&I Railroad Bridge for commuters.

We received calls from drivers Tuesday saying they saw vehicles driving on the bridge. Air 3 was sent to check it out and we made some calls to get answers.

What we learned is the K&I Bridge is privately owned by Northern Southern and it is unavailable for public use.

The vehicles seen on the bridge were those being used by railroad employees.
