A bridge closure may impact Cynosport travel.
If you are coming to Louisville for the Cynosport World Games from the west via I-64, please note that the I-64 bridge, which crosses the Ohio River from New Albany, Indiana, has been closed indefinitely due to structural cracks. This may particularly affect competitors with motel reservations in or west of New Albany. The bridge closure will cause a significant traffic slowdown as commuters are rerouted. The Indiana Department of Transportation estimates that it will take three weeks just to do the testing and analysis of the bridge with repairs to follow.
Competitors that will be travelling through this area should keep watch on this situation. You can Google "Sherman Minton Bridge closure" in order to get the latest news. We will update you as we get more information.
