Sherman Minton Bridge Work Shifts to Inspections

All I-64 lanes reopened for mornings into Louisville, evenings into Indiana

FLOYD COUNTY, Ind. – Sherman Minton Bridge maintenance work is expected to be completed today, allowing regularly scheduled bridge inspections to begin on Monday, Nov. 11.

With this transition comes a new schedule of I-64 lane closures as most of the arm’s length inspections will occur during daylight hours. On weekdays, all lanes of the bridge will be reopened eastbound from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. for the morning rush into Louisville and westbound from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the evening rush into Indiana.

During an anticipated three weeknights, two eastbound lanes will be closed between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. This will allow inspections of the double-decker bridge over the center eastbound lane.

A more detailed listing of lane closures is provided below.

Single Lane Closures: Monday through Thursday

Eastbound: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Westbound: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Single Lane Closures: Friday

Eastbound: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Westbound: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Single Lane Closures: Saturday and Sunday

Eastbound: 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Westbound: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Two Lane Closures: Three Weeknights

Eastbound: 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.

The regularly scheduled bridge inspections immediately follow the bridge maintenance work to minimize inconvenience to the motoring public. Bridge maintenance work completed includes asphalt joint replacement, stringer repairs (longitudinal beams that run parallel to traffic), limited fastener replacement, bridge drainage system repairs and slopewall repairs.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) coordinated the maintenance schedule with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet as the Sherman Minton Bridge serves an alternate route during I-65 Downtown Crossing construction. Indiana and Kentucky are splitting cost for Sherman Minton Bridge maintenance over the Ohio River, and Indiana is responsible for the approach spans over the Indiana shoreline.

INDOT estimates that the inspections will be completed before the Thanksgiving travel holiday.
