Monday marks beginning of traffic woes for Downtown Crossing construction

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Starting on Monday, commuters can expect traffic delays because of the Ohio River Bridges project.

Monday morning, marks the start of major traffic changes as work gets underway on the Downtown Crossing. The first lane restrictions will happen on the Kennedy Bridge, then later that same day, crews will shut down the ramp from I-64 to I-65 southbound. Then on Monday, I-65 will be narrowed from three to two lanes from the Jefferson Street ramp to Muhammad Ali Boulevard.

It will be tricky for drivers and for those who spend most of the day in cars, like cab drivers.

"When they started building the bridge, we knew it would be a headache," said Joe Pearson, a cab driver. "We have to deal with customers being mad at us, which we deal with anyway."

Several drivers have been dreading this, but as you heard, they have to get used to it because this work is expected to last for the next several years, and it all starts Monday morning.
