LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Five teams of construction firms will compete to build the new Ohio River bridge in downtown Louisville.

The teams will put together cost and design proposals. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will narrow the field to three teams in mid-April.

The winning team will be chosen by October so construction can begin by the end of 2012.

The bridge is scheduled for completion by June 2018.
