LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- LMPD officials are urging drivers to remain patient as Kennedy Bridge construction continues.
Ongoing construction has caused gridlock traffic out of downtown nearly every afternoon since workers began replacing expansion joints and repairing potholes.
LMPD says it's working to keep traffic lights green on the Second Street Bridge.
But they warn that drivers caught trying to bust through traffic lights will be cited.
"A lot of the concerns we have from citizens is people running red lights to fill up that lane of traffic to be able to make the turn on to Second Street," said LMPD Lt. Joe Seelye. "If you are caught doing that, please know we are going to do something with the enforcement approach. We would ask that you just be respectful and mindful -- everybody's trying to go somewhere."
LMPD also urges businesses to stagger start times to ease traffic downtown.
Work on the bridge is scheduled to be finished by the end of July. Exit ramps to I-71 and I-64 that have been closed were scheduled to re-open on July 9 but did not due to unexpected delays. Transportation officials now say the ramps should reopen by 5 a.m. on July 12.
