Kentucky, Indiana Select Finalists for Bridges Project

Kentucky and Indiana have narrowed the list of finalists to build their respective portions of the Ohio River Bridges Project.

Kentucky now has three finalists for the construction of a downtown Louisville bridge and the reworking of Spaghetti Junction. Indiana has selected four finalists for an east end bridge.

Transportation and other officials from the two states will meet with their finalist teams to develop their proposals. Kentucky is expected to select a winning team this fall; Indiana says it will have team in place by year’s end.

The $2.6 billion Ohio River Bridges Project cleared a major hurdle last week when the federal government signed off on an environmental impact statement for the plan. It still must approve a record of decision, which is expected this summer.

Ohio River Transportation Constructors, a joint venture of Kiewit Infrastructure Co., Traylor Brothers Inc., Kokosing Construction Co. Inc., and Massman Construction Co.

Skanska, Flatiron, Dragados USA

Walsh Construction Company

Informational Meetings This Week for Bridges Project

Meetings will be held this week in Louisville for companies that want to take part in the Ohio River Bridges Project.

Kentucky and Indiana officials announced in December that the two states would split responsibilities for the project, with Kentucky building a downtown Louisville bridge and reworking Spaghetti Junction. Indiana will handle construction of a bridge and approaches east of Louisville.

The Kentucky Department of Transportation will conduct its meeting Thursday at the Kentucky
International Convention Center. The Indiana Department of Transportation will hold a session on the eastern span this Friday at the same site.

“We’ll be presenting information about the procurement process and the project for the East End Bridge and its approaches. And we’ll also accept questions and try to educate the group that’s there,” said INDOT spokesman Will Wingfield.

The Kentucky Transporation Cabinet meeting is Thursday from 10:00am-4:00pm at the KICC; the Indiana meeting is Friday from 9:00am-noon.
