Kennedy Bridge to close for six months next week

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kennedy Bridge will close entirely next week.

For the past month, drivers have been using one lane to go from I-65 South to I-64 East and I-71 North. After the Kennedy Bridge closes, all traffic will shift to the Lincoln Bridge.

That lane of Kennedy Bridge is expected to close Monday overnight, with full closure by 5 a.m. Tuesday. 

The Kennedy will be closed for about six months while crews install a new flooring system below the driving surface.

The Lincoln Bridge will continue to carry I-65 North and South traffic while Kennedy Bridge is closed.
