Kentucky is in charge of building a new bridge for northbound Interstate 65 traffic; a renovated and reconfigured John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge for southbound traffic; and improved downtown interchanges in Louisville and Jeffersonville, Ind.
Indiana is in charge of building a new bridge and approaches to connect the Gene Snyder Freeway in Kentucky with the Lee Hamilton Highway in Indiana.
