Kennedy Interchange ramp expected to be open Monday morning

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky Transportation officials are installing supports today on the Kennedy Interchange that carries traffic from I-65 North to I-64 West and expect the ramp to be open for commuters on Monday morning.

The ramp was closed Friday evening when a motorist called the Transportation Operations Center in Frankfort and reported concrete crumbling from the support column.

Crews with Walsh Construction are installing the supports to shore up the support column. Initial results indicated concrete degradation in the pier column and additional material analysis continues.

Andy Barber of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said they will be inspecting all piers in the Kentucky Interchange in the coming weeks.
