LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The anticipated nine-day eastbound closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge has been delayed again.

The closure was scheduled to begin at 2 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 12.

According to the Sherman Minton Renewal project team, the closure was delayed twice after determining additional work would be needed to make the traffic switch.

Officials said a contractor is working to complete items of work needed to prepare for the closure.

“The project has commitments to the public to publish early closure notices in advance of those closures,” a statement from spokeswoman Andrea Brady said. “Due to the nature of the construction in the rehabilitation of this structure it is difficult to predict every detail that may be encountered that could impact the schedule.”

More information will be shared on the nine-day closure as a new date is identified.
