Traffic shifts to affect 10th Street motorists

Bridges project construction closures, restrictions listed

The following closures and lane restrictions are expected this week and next in connection with construction on the downtown portion of the Ohio River Bridges Project.

In Indiana, two shifts in the traffic patterns will affect drivers on 10th Street in Jeffersonville. The northbound exit and entrance ramp in Jeffersonville has been reduced to one lane for long-term work in the area. The ramp is reduced to one lane between 10th Street and Stansifer Avenue. The closure will be in place through late 2015 to build a new retaining wall and eventually a new entrance ramp from 10th Street to Interstate 65 north.

Starting Monday, Dec. 16, drivers will now yield, instead of merging onto 10th Street from I-65 north in Jeffersonville. The new traffic pattern is expected to take effect by 3 p.m. Monday.

Additional traffic restrictions include U.S. 31 south (exit ramp 1) from Brown Station Way to Stansifer Avenue has been reduced to two lanes. U.S. 31 south, in the area just south of Stansifer Avenue, has been reduced to one lane, but vehicles are still able to exit onto 10th Street.
