Southern Indiana motorists who plan to travel southbound over the Kennedy Bridge Friday and Saturday nights will encounter some delays

Friday night, the Indiana Department of Transportation will be patching the outside lane of southbound I-65 between Mile Marker One and the bridge, as well as a two nearby ramps.

Spokesperson Marvin Jenkins says work continues Saturday night on two other southbound lanes approaching the bridge.

“It will start about 8:00pm (Saturday), they’ll work in the median lane. Then starting about 10:00pm, they’ll close the center lane. So at 10:00pm two of the three lanes will be restricted,” Jenkins said.

Meanwhile, the nearby Clark Memorial Bridge will be closed from 8:00-10:00pm Saturday for a charity fundraiser.

Jenkins says there will be signs directing motorists to an alternate route that will take them over the Sherman Minton Bridge.
