Clark Memorial Bridge To Be Closed For Arena Work

by Gabe Bullard on September 20, 2010

The Clark Memorial Bridge will be closed Monday and Tuesday due to construction on the KFC Yum Center.

Crews need to put a crane on the bridge so they can put the Cardinal logo and other signs on the arena. The bridge will be closed from 7 pm to 5 am both days. Transportation Cabinet spokesperson Andrea Clifford says most motorists are likely accustomed to taking an alternate route when the bridge is closed for other reasons.

“The Clark Memorial Bridge is a route that a lot of organizations like to use for, you know, 5K runs and walks and the Iron Man and things such as that,” she says. “We get applications for the closure of that bridge, it’s usually for weekends like Saturday mornings or Sunday mornings when the traffic volumes are not as high.”

The bridge will remain open to pedestrian traffic all week.

Is any information available on how cyclists and pedestrians can travel between Louisville and Jeffersonville during this closure period?
