Texts to help relieve traffic headaches

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE)- If you are already dreading your next drive to and from work with all of Louisville's traffic tie ups, the Ohio River Bridges Project hopes to bring drivers some relief with text alerts on bridge construction updates for both the downtown and East Louisville crossings. 

Some 3,000 people have already signed up for email blasts but the text alerts will bring drivers immediate notifications. 

The text alert sign ups have been on the project's website for the last few weeks in an attempt to make sure all the technology is working properly according to an Ohio River Bridges Project spokeswoman.

WAVE 3 News has learned project leaders plan to announce the text alerts next week officially, but drivers can sign up to receive the text alerts now by just going to the website and clicking on the 'Get Involved' tab.
