Memorial Parkway Bridge Opens

After 100+ days, the Memorial Parkway bridge has been reopened to through traffic. This is the turn lane heading south towards I-471. FTM file. 
A bridge restoration project on the KY 1120 (Memorial Parkway) that crosses over I-471 is finally complete after beginning construction on May 11. The project called for the bridge to be closed to traffic and pedestrians for a 60-day period between late May and August, however weather added some time onto the project.

There is still one lane closed on the bridge, eastbound, but both north and south exits are open at exit 4 of I-471.


A new concrete bridge deck overlay was be placed on the bridge and, for pedestrian safety, a sidewalk installed.

Prus Construction Company, of Cincinnati, OH was awarded the contract on a low-bid of $1.3 million.
