LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE)  - Before the new year begins area residents will get the chance to walk the Big Four Bridge.

The final piece of steel was installed Wednesday on the bridge on the Indiana side.

A soft opening is expected at the end of December, but a date has not been set.

Pedestrians can use the Louisville ramp up to the bridge, but cannot exit the bridge on the Jeffersonville side.

The Jeffersonville ramp is still under construction and is not expected to open until summer 2013.
