Sherman Minton Bridge 9-day closure now scheduled in late November
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A nine-day closure for the Sherman Minton Bridge has been rescheduled to take place after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Eastbound I-64 is now set to close starting on Nov. 28 at 9 p.m. through 5 a.m. on Dec. 7, according to a release from the Sherman Minton Renewal project.
During the closure, crews will begin demolition work associated with Phase 2 of the renewal project.
The closure was originally scheduled for early October before being delayed twice after determining additional work was needed to make the traffic switch.
During the closure, the I-64 eastbound ramp from West Spring Street will close along with the I-64 eastbound to I-264 eastbound ramp.
A spokesperson for the Sherman Minton Renewal project said through traffic that bypasses I-265 will not be able to cross the bridge, instead requiring an exit onto West 5th Street in New Albany and accessing I-64 West through local roads.
