Sherman Minton contract to be awarded soon

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- This week we will learn how long the Sherman Minton bridge will stay closed and how much it will cost to repair. The Indiana Department of Transportation will announce which contractor will receive the repair project on Tuesday.

Indiana and Kentucky estimate the bridge will be closed for six months. But the contract sets a completion date for July of 2012, nine months after it closed. The contractor will receive bonuses for finishing early.

The cost will be split among the two states and the federal government.
