In the US, the Ohio River Bridges East End Crossing—now named Lewis and Clark Bridge—opened to traffic in mid-December.

The Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges project is a collaboration between the states of Indiana and Kentucky to improve highway accessibility and connectivity in the Louisville metropolitan area.

In addition to the 750m-long cable-stayed bridge, the entire Lewis and Clark Bridge Project features a pedestrian and bicycle path, around 14km of new highway and twin 518m-long tunnels under an historic site.

The Lewis and Clark Bridge Project is part of the larger US$2.3 billion Louisville Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project, which includes the Downtown Crossing—now named the Abraham Lincoln Bridge.

All electronic tolling features on the Lewis and Clark Bridge, the Abraham Lincoln Bridge, and the improved I-65 Kennedy Bridge. A River Link E-ZPass local transponder will ensure the lowest toll rates, according to infrastructure engineering group 3220 Parsons, lead partner in the Community Transportation Solutions joint venture that served as the overall project’s general engineering consultant. The JV was responsible for contract scope and budget development, design review and coordination of the six section design consultants. In addition.

Parsons was the technical advisor for the implementation of the East End Crossing’s award-winning public-private partnership (P3), which consisted of the development, design, construction, financing, operation, and maintenance of the bridge and approaches in each state. Parsons also served as the project’s toll system advisor.
