LOUISVILLE — EAST-END BRIDGE GETS DESIGN TWEAK

• The design for the east-end bridge has been altered by WVB East End Partners, the organization building the east-end bridge. It is now a convex diamond-tower cable-stayed structure. This design is very similar to one favored by the public in a 2006 survey. The distance between the two convex diamond towers is 1,200 feel (four football fields) providing a wide, boater friendly channel. The convex diamond towers and other curved vertical elements, such as the roadway lighting and pedestrian walkway railings, give the bridge a curvilinear theme. The towers and cables are designed to give motorists clear views of the landscape. A 14-foot pedestrian/bicycle path will run along the west side of the bridge. The cost of the bridge is predicted to be $763 million. View images at kyinbridges.com
