Bridge repairs force week-long closure of Eastern Parkway near Poplar Level Road

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A busy stretch of Eastern Parkway will be closed for the next week for bridge repairs.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says parts of the bridge over the South Fork of Beargrass Creek east of Poplar Level Road are failing. The subsoil condition caused part of the bridge to settle more than 4 inches. So anchors need to be installed to secure the structure.

Officials say drivers can avoid the area by taking Newburg Road or Poplar Level Road to the Watterson Expressway.

If the weather cooperates, the road should re-open by 5 a.m. on Friday, August 4.
