The Ohio River Bridges Project is a bi-state transportation initiative of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) with the goal of connecting Louisville, Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
Burgess & Niple (B&N) was selected to lead the design of the Indiana Approach for the new East End Bridge over the Ohio River. As part of the design process, B&N was required to adhere to commitments set forth in the Record of Decision generated as a result of the Environmental Impact Statement completed for the project. This included historic properties, wetland delineation and mitigation, stream mitigation, waterway permitting, wildlife crossings, and noise mitigation in park and residential areas.
B&N provided additional environmental coordination with INDOT to complete wetland delineation work, stream assessment and coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District in preparation for the initiation of Clean Water Act permitting activities and mitigation development.
