Bridge closure hurting college enrollments

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Two Kentuckiana Universities said the closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge is hurting their enrollment.

The University of Louisville and Indiana University Southeast in New Albany said the bridge closure has lead to the largest drop in spring enrollment in four years.

IUS said their enrollment is down nearly 4 percent from last spring. UofL said they are down about 8,000 students.

The Sherman Minton Bridge has been closed since September 9, 2011. The repair work is expected to be complete by the March 1 deadline.
