Lane closures on Ohio River bridge extended for repairs

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Officials say a bridge over the Ohio River that connects Kentucky and Indiana needs repair work, which means some lanes will be closed longer than expected. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said in a statement that the three left lanes of the Interstate 65 Kennedy Bridge were closed Monday for an inspection and crews determined an expansion joint needed to be repaired. The statement said three of the six bridge lanes connecting Jeffersonville, Indiana, and Louisville, Kentucky, will remain closed until the repairs are completed to avoid damaging vehicles traveling across the span. A timeline for repairs wasn’t given.
