LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Drivers heading into Kentucky from Indiana need to be aware of lane closures on the Sherman Minton Bridge out of New Albany.

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that one lane of eastbound Interstate 64 will close for crews to take samples of the bridge deck.

The samples are being taken to determine if the concrete surface needs to be rehabbed or replaced.

Closures are scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 21, weather permitting. If weather or other problems make it necessary for a second day of lane closures, those would take place during the same time frame on Wednesday, October 24.

Drivers expect delays during the work hours.
