Lane closures on I-65 are scheduled to begin on Thursday, June 21, at 8 p.m. EDT and remain in place through the end of July. Vehicles wider than 9 feet are restricted from traveling through the work zone.
Two lanes of traffic on the bridge will be maintained in each direction during the project. That will require traffic to be shifted to the opposite side of the bridge at certain phases.
The Kennedy Memorial Bridge has four northbound lanes but only three southbound lanes. To keep two lanes open in the southbound direction and provide enough space for the construction to take place, the contractor has proposed constructing a median cross-over on the bridge so one northbound lane can be used for southbound traffic.
To accomplish that, a portion of the median barrier wall on the bridge will be removed, and temporary pavement will be laid to allow for traffic flow to the opposite side of the bridge. The median crossover will be removed at the end of the project and the barrier wall reinstalled.
During construction, several ramps on each side of the bridge and in the I-65/I-64 interchange will be closed (see attached maps). Motorists must follow the signed detours during these closures. The following ramps (shown in yellow on the map) will be closed on June 21 at 8 p.m. and remain closed for the duration of the project:
1) The exit ramp from eastbound I-64 to northbound I-65 in Kentucky
2) The exit ramp from southbound I-65 to Market Street in Indiana
3) The entrance ramp from Court Avenue to southbound I-65 in Indiana
Beginning June 24 at 8 p.m., the exit ramps from southbound I-65 to eastbound I-64/northbound I-71 and westbound I-64 (shown in blue) will be closed. These ramps will be closed for 10 days.
In addition, the exit ramps from northbound I-65 to eastbound I-64/northbound I-71 and westbound I-64 (shown in purple) will be closed for 15 days – also beginning June 24at 8 p.m.
The attached map and calendar show the current schedule for ramp closures during the project. All work is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 15, 2012. Actual starting date and duration of work are subject to change in the event of inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays.
