LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The ramp from Liberty Street to I-65 North will soon reopen to traffic.

The work is scheduled for overnight Friday, with the ramp expected to open by 5 a.m. on Saturday, February 20. The ramp in Downtown Louisville is reopening to traffic as crews with Walsh Construction continue to make progress on the Downtown Crossing portion of the Ohio River Bridges Project.

The ramp has been closed for about a year. During the closure, the ramp has been rebuilt to provide new connections to the newly opened Abraham Lincoln Bridge. 

Muhammad Ali Ramp Closing
As the Liberty Street ramp reopens to traffic, another downtown ramp will be closing. The ramp from Muhammad Ali Boulevard to I-65 North is expected to close around 9 p.m. on Friday.

The Ali ramp is expected to be closed for about three months. During the closure, the ramp will be rebuilt to connect with the new Lincoln Bridge.

Through Lane Added to I-65 North
With the opening of the new Liberty Street ramp, drivers will soon gain access to another through lane of traffic. The right lane of I-65 North, just south of Muhammad Ali Boulevard, will carry traffic to I-65 North, I-64 and I-71. The right lane is currently a mandatory exit lane to Muhammad Ali Boulevard. Crews have several days of work to do on a barrier wall before the through lane opens to traffic. It should open in the next few weeks.
