The southbound approach to the Clark Memorial Bridge will be reduced to one-lane beginning Monday morning.

Crews will be dismantling historic limestone pylons and railings, officials from the project said.  The structures will be reincorporated into the bridge once ramp construction is complete.

The work will eventually move into the northbound approach, closing one lane in each direction.

The existing four travel lanes on the Clark Memorial Bridge will not be affected during the work.

Clark Bridge Repairs Begin; Rush Hour Delays Likely

Motorists who use the Clark Memorial Bridge will likely endure some rush hour delays as repair work gets underway this week.

Andrea Clifford with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the work will require around-the-clock lane reductions.

"The contractor is allowed two, 30 day segments," Clifford said. "It will be 30 days for one half of the bridge and 30 days for the other half because we’ll be reducing the bridge from four lanes down to two lanes, so we’ll always have one lane going in each direction."
