Lanes of I-65 to close on Kennedy Bridge

Repair work on the Interstate 65 Kennedy Bridge will require some lane closures starting Friday, May 10, according to a press release from the Ohio River Bridges Project team.

Two of three lanes on southbound I-65 will be affected. The work will be limited to three weekends and begin at 9 p.m. on Fridays and continue through 5 a.m. the following Mondays.

The right two lanes of I-65 southbound will be closed from the bridge’s northern approach in Jeffersonville, to the far south end of the bridge in downtown Louisville. Southbound traffic will be limited to one lane. The entrance ramp from Court Avenue in Jeffersonville, to southbound I-65, will be closed during the weekend work.

All lanes and exit ramps at the south end of the Kennedy Bridge will remain open. The exit 0 ramp from southbound I-65 to West Market Street in Jeffersonville will be open.

Walsh Construction, the design-build team building the downtown crossing, is doing the work as part of the Ohio River Bridges Project, which includes improvements to the Kennedy Bridge. Crews are making structural steel repairs and adding new steel cover plates. The new plates will be positioned and secured to the bridge using high strength bolts.

Work is scheduled for the weekends of May 10-13, May 17-20 and May 31-June 3. No work is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend
