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 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.
