East End Bridges construction kicks off

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky and Indiana leaders are gathering Wednesday morning to mark the start of construction on a new East End Bridge.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Indiana Governor Mike Pence will officially celebrate the start of construction on the East End bridge.

The East End Bridges project has been a years-long quest to build the two new Ohio River bridges.

Site preparations and pre-construction work have been taking place for months.

But in the next two weeks, excavation, pavement widening, and traffic changes will all be visible.

There will also be blasting near the intersection of U.S. 42 and KY 841, causing traffic to spot along those roads in spurts.
