More drivers are taking advantage of the new and improved transportation options provided by the Louisville – Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project. Traffic on the three tolled bridges — the new SR 265 Lewis and Clark Bridge, the new I-65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the improved I-65 Kennedy Bridge – climbed more than 15 percent from the end of January to the end of March.
There were more than 2.2 million crossings of the tolled bridges in January. That number climbed to nearly 2.6 million during March. Nearly 7 million crossings were recorded on the three bridges in the first quarter of the year.
