Louisville, KY (WDRB) -- More concerns are being brought to light now that the East End Bridge project is moving out of the planning phase and into the construction phase.
For example, Laura Nichols lives in the Harbor of Harrods Creek Condos and says boating in the marina may not be very enjoyable over the next few years.
"The noise is definitely concerning. I think it's going to affect a lot of people," Nichols told WDRB News.
Even though she's concerned about the noise, Nichols thinks the bridge will have a positive impact in the end.
"I think part of it is people are realizing construction is starting now even though it's been discussed and talked about for years. When trees come down and you see things change near your neighborhood, that really brings it home that the project is starting," said Ronald Heustis, East End Project Manager with INDOT.
Heustis says the goal of these open houses is to provide as much information to residents as possible. Project managers call it an "introduction of sorts" to the construction project. Just halfway through Tuesday night's meeting, more than 400 people had checked in.
Another open house will take place at the John Nobel Woods Utica Community Center in Utica, Indiana, on Wednesday, March 13 from 5-7 p.m.
