Clark Memorial cleanup project begins

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A $1 million cleanup project on the Clark Memorial bridge starts this week.

Rotted out fence lining, exposed rebar, and street signs used to cover gaping holes in the sidewalk.  WDRB first revealed the bridge's condition in October.

The problem is that seniors regularly use the sidewalk connecting Louisville and southern Indiana for exercise, and some were concerned for their safety because of its condition.

Kentucky Transportation hired Hall Contracting, the same company that fixed the Sherman Minton, for the repairs.  Officials say repairs should take six to eight weeks to complete.
