Focus on worker safety on Ohio River Bridges Project

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- "No one gets hurt" is not only the motto for the construction crew building the new downtown bridge, it's now the motto for the entire Ohio River Bridges Project.

Crews from Walsh Construction, WVB East End Partners, and transportation officials signed a safety partnership Monday afternoon.

Rob Morphonios, Project Manager, WVB East End Partners, said, "This partnership is a win for the entire community because when any business conducts itself in a safe manner where the culture of safety is part of the entire operation, that business produces a better product, an on-time product, and a product that is on budget. and with that, everyone wins."

Kentucky transportation officials say the purpose of the deal is to make the construction of the bridges and everything that goes with them as safe as possible for the hundreds of workers involved.
