LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The southbound lanes of Clark Memorial Bridge near the Indiana side will reopen tomorrow and one northbound lane will be closed as crews making repairs to the bridge's sidewalk and railings switch sides.
Contract crews have been busy repairing the steel and sidewalks on the Indiana approach to the bridge, and the southbound lanes have been closed since mid-January to accommodate this work.
The traffic pattern is scheduled to switch tomorrow, Tuesday, February 12, as construction moves to the northbound lanes of the bridge.
Crews will begin changing the pavement striping and moving the barrier walls around 8 a.m.
One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction utilizing the southbound lanes of the bridge.
The northbound lanes of the bridge near the Indiana shore will be closed 24 hours a day for the next 30 days while crews replace handrails & sidewalks and repair bridge expansion joints.
Approximately 15,000 vehicles cross this bridge each day.
The speed limit in the work zone is reduced to 25 mph for the duration of the project. The project is signed as a double fine work zone.
Hall Contracting of Louisville was awarded the contract for this project in the amount of $1.07 million. Construction is scheduled for completion by April 15, 2013.
Painting of the steel on the Indiana approach will be performed under separate contract this summer. Lane closures on the bridge will not be needed to perform this work, but some sidewalk closures may be necessary.
