Repair Work on the Clark Memorial Bridge Begins

Work on the Clark Memorial Bridge in Kentucky is beginning work today, and the construction could impact traffic for weeks.

The bridge was closed to all traffic beginning at 9 a.m. to prepare for the sidewalk and railing repairs.

Two lanes will be opened to accommodate southbound traffic only from Indiana to downtown Louisville before the evening rush hour.

New striping will be applied to restrict the bridge to southbound-only during repair meaning the two northbound lanes will become southbound lanes.

The timing of that change is being coordinated with the ongoing Sherman Minton Bridge construction.

The two lanes of southbound traffic will be maintained throughout the repair project completion.

Both sidewalks will remain closed to pedestrian travel until repairs have been completed.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said work should wrap up by mid-April.

The damage happened when a multi-vehicle crash sent a semi over the side of the bridge on March 1. The driver was stuck in the dangling cab, but they were pulled to safety.
