New ramp from I-65-S to I-64E now open

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Another new ramp is opening to traffic as crews with Walsh Construction continue to make progress on the Downtown Crossing portion of the Ohio River Bridges Project.

That's according to a news release from the Ohio River Bridges Downtown Crossing Project. The new ramp will carry traffic from I-65 South to I-64 East in the Kennedy Interchange.

I-64 East will now split from I-71 North much sooner, nearly a mile before the old ramp. The change means that drivers traveling from I-65 South to I-64 East will need to be prepared to access the on-ramp at an earlier point.

Signage will be in place, clearly marking the new ramp. Drivers are reminded to slow down in construction zones, especially as new ramps and roadways open to traffic.

Crews worked through the night to make sure the ramp was ready to open today.

The old ramp will soon be demolished to make room for new construction.

More than 40 new ramps and overpasses are being built on the Kentucky side of the river as the Kennedy Interchange is rebuilt, untangling many of the weaves of “Spaghetti Junction.”
