McKay also stated that the cable-stays, which support the weight of the bridge, also are being installed, and that installation will continue throughout the summer. Concrete deck panels also will be installed on the main span of the bridge this summer.

According to McKay crews completed blasting for the tunnels, on the Kentucky side in May, and the concrete work was finished in June. Allowing for work to occur on the tunnel’s ventilation, lighting, traffic-monitoring and fire-suppression systems to start. On the Indiana side, paving also should be completed by summer, and crews are working on improving a shared-use path to the bridge.
