LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Lane closures will begin the week of January 14 on the Clark Memorial Bridge, also known as the 2nd Street Bridge.

Crews will be painting and doing sidewalk repairs on the Indiana approach. Traffic will be taken down to one lane each direction 24 hours a day while crews paint the steel, replace the handrails and sidewalks and begin to repair expansion joints.

According to a KYTC press release, the contractor is permitted two 30-day time periods for the lane closures, one for each side of the bridge. The first section will begin Monday.

The speed limit will be reduced on the bridge to 25 MPH in the work zone. Speeders will be facing a double fine in the work zone.

Hall Contracting of Louisville was awarded the contract for this project in the amount of $1.07 million. Construction is scheduled for completion by April 15, 2013.
