Louisville, KY (WDRB) -- We're seeing more delays for the Indiana ramp to the Big Four Bridge. Crews are still working on the ramp in Jeffersonville. It was supposed to open in June. Now, it's being pushed back to August.
On this sunny, but chilly day, the Louisville side of the Big Four Bridge ramp was open to enjoy. A sign is up reminding pet owners to leash and pick up after their dogs.
Sean Ladson, a Big Four Bridge visitor says, "We just want to have a stroll across the bridge to check it out and see if we can enjoy the weather a little bit."
People can walk across the bridge, but will come to a stop on the Indiana side because the Jeffersonville ramp is still being worked on. The Indiana Department of Transportation says the anticipated completion date is now August 31st, but could possibly be later. It was originally set to open in June.
INDOT says the big issue for the delay was the city of Jeffersonville changing to a curb and handrail with LED lighting instead of using light posts. INDOT says some residents didn't like the original proposed lighting plan because of the possibility of light shining through windows.
Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore says, "Everyone is excited. When they walk to the very end they look over at Jeff and I'd love to welcome them in, but we've got to do things right and I don't have any reservations. The right thing to do was get the community input."
Linda Williams, the Old Bridge Inn and Breakfast Owner, says, "They can only do what they can do. They've been working very hard and very steady on it. I can tell you that any kind of delays I'm sure are just beyond their control and they are doing the best they can." Williams has a front row seat to the construction, which is across from her business.
INDOT says curb work and bridge deck concrete will be finished by the first week of May, with handrail sections arriving in July. Despite the delays, Williams and other business owners are excited about the project.
Williams says, "It is awesome. It is going to look lovely and it's going to bring the folks right here to the historic district where they can shop the shops and of course we'll be very visible."
Wednesday night, there is also a meeting between the City Council and the Redevelopment Commission to talk about the Big Four Bridge and other projects.
