LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Two public hearings and a virtual presentation on the Sherman Minton Bridge renovation project are scheduled for Tuesday.

The first is from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Sheraton Louisville Riverside Hotel in Jeffersonville. The second is from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Calumet Club on Spring Street in New Albany.

In December, the Indiana Finance Authority chose Kokosing Construction Company as their pick to head the upgrades.

Crews will be working on the Interstate 64 connection between Louisville and New Albany.

The company estimates that the project will cost $137 million, which is nearly $50 million more than first expected.
