Opening of Big Four Bridge delayed

LOUISVILLE — The Big Four Bridge opening has been delayed until late January or early February, according to a press release from the Louisville Waterfront Development Corp.

Kentucky’s portion of the pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Ohio River was expected to open sometime in December. However, the “soft opening” has been delayed due to a holdup in the fabrication of the railings for the bridge. The balance of the railings for the bridge will not be received until mid-January, and installation could take several weeks, according to the release.

Jeffersonville’s ramp that will connect the Indiana and Kentucky portions of the pedestrian crossing is expected to be complete some time in June.
