OHIO RIVER BRIDGES
Work remains on schedule in building new Ohio River bridge east of Louisville

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, June 21, 2014 10:26 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Project officials say work remains on schedule in constructing a new bridge east of Louisville — one of two new Ohio River bridges being built to connect Kentucky and Indiana.

The Courier-Journal reports that workers began pouring concrete late last month on the first waterline footing of the East End bridge. It's a sign that the new span's foundation is emerging from the Ohio River near the Indiana shoreline a year after construction began.

The bridge will connect the Gene Snyder Freeway in eastern Jefferson County, Kentucky, with the Lee Hamilton Highway in Southern Indiana.

The more than $2 billion project also includes a new Interstate 65 bridge connecting downtown Louisville and Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Both new bridges are expected to open with tolls in 2016.
