LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Indiana ramp to the Big Four Bridge will not open on Derby week as previously planned.

The state had agreed to allow the ramp to open on April 30 if the city of Jeffersonville installed temporary lighting on handrails on the Indiana approach.  

Crews started installing the handrails, but Thursday the Indiana Department of Transportation said the lighting was not enough and the bridge opening will need to be postponed again.

Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore's office said they are disappointed and frustrated with INDOT for the set back.
