Information provided by KYTC:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) -  Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) bridge engineers will continue their biannual inspection the week of October 14 on the bridges on Interstate 64 over the Kentucky River in Franklin County (mile point 55.4).  The inspection is taking longer than expected due to some equipment problems and the need to have power shut down on some electrical lines in close proximity to the bridge. 

Inspection on the eastbound I-64 bridge will extend through Wednesday, October 16.  Inspection on the westbound I-64 bridge is scheduled to begin Thursday, October 17 and continue through Friday, October 25.

The right lane on I-64 will be closed weekdays from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. to allow for this assessment.  Inspectors are using a snooper truck to inspect the underside of these bridges.

Drivers should expect heavy traffic delays while the lane closures are in place and allow extra time to reach their destination.
