LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Ohio River Bridges Downtown Crossing has announced the ramp from I-65 north to I-64 west will be closed for one week beginning February 1.

Repairs are expected to begin Saturday morning, February 1, with crews working through the weekend.  The work should take about a week to complete and will require closure of the ramp.  The ramp is expected to close around 7 a.m. Saturday. 

Walsh Construction Co., leader of the Design-Build Team that is building the Downtown Crossing, will remove the deteriorated concrete, replace damaged steel rebar and pour a new layer of concrete around the column to encase the repaired core. 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has completed a field inspection of scores of other columns in the Kennedy Interchange.  The inspection was a precautionary measure that focused on columns with exposed rebar or other signs of deterioration.  Engineers are continuing to assess the information gathered, but no immediate action was needed.

KYTC closed the I-65 North to I-64 West ramp for a weekend in December after significant deterioration was discovered.  Walsh Construction quickly installed temporary shoring with steel beams to support the damaged column until the more extensive repairs were completed. 

The entire ramp will be torn down and replaced in 2015 as part of the reconstruction of the Kennedy Interchange, which is a major part of the Downtown Crossing project.
