The first long-term closure related to the Ohio River Bridges Project is set for Monday.
Beginning July 8, the interstate ramp from Interstate 64 east to Interstate 65 south will close and remain closed for up to 1,000 days, according to a bridges project press release.
The ramp closure is the only closing planned for 2013 in connection with the new downtown crossing.
Signs alerting drivers of the impending closure are in place and the suggested detour for through traffic is I-264 westbound, according to the release. Drivers seeking local access are advised to plan ahead and decide which surface streets will work best to reach their destinations.
Signage will advise drivers heading to downtown hospitals to use the Ninth Street exit to Chestnut Street in Louisville.
