Downtown crossing to be ready ahead of schedule

Gov. Beshear Ohio River Bridges ProjectMotorists will drive on Louisville’s new Downtown bridge within a year – at least three months ahead of schedule.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is accelerating construction of the bridge, part of the Downtown Crossing of the Ohio River Bridges Project, to allow for more extensive improvements that will extend the life of the 51-year-old John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear announced that new Downtown bridge will open in January 2016.

“Just over a year and a half ago, we gathered at this spot to break ground on the Downtown Crossing,” Beshear said. “Since then, we’ve watched the towers rise out of the river and the much-needed Downtown bridge begin to take shape. Today’s announcement means progress will be coming at an even faster pace.”

When the new bridge opens in January 2016, it will carry both northbound and southbound I-65 traffic. Then, the Kennedy Bridge will close to allow Walsh Construction to build a new floor system.
