Work on river navigational aids to cause Kennedy Bridge lane closure

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A lane of Interstate 65 on the Kennedy Bridge heading into Kentucky from Indiana will be closed tonight for repair work.

According to Chuck Wolfe of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the right hand lane of southbound I-65 on the Kennedy will be shut down from 9 p.m. Tuesday until 5 a.m. Wednesday, July 10.

The closure will allow crews work on navigational lights for river traffic that are attached to the bridge.

The I-65 lane closure on the bridge is in addition to one that will take place in the left lane as drivers exit the bridge. That closure, related to the construction of the new downtown Ohio River bridge, will occur during the same time frame.

KYTC says drivers using southbound I-65 tonight should use extreme caution.
