LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Work began on a temporary safety fence that will be used to keep a downtown area clear for construction on the new Downtown Crossing.

Tuesday crews began installing the new fence at Waterfront Park. The fence is being placed in the area immediately surrounding the Kennedy Bridge, including the area just east of the Kennedy where the new bridge will be built.

A release from the Bridges Project-Downtown Crossing stated, the Purple Lot will be closed during construction and several benches, picnic tables, light posts and trees within the fenced area will be relocated.

During construction the River Road sidewalk will remain open with continuous access from the west to the east portions of the park.

Work on the fence is expected to be completed by Wednesday.
