New Louisville bridge to open

If only I had the money to go to Louisville tomorrow ...

The new Abraham Lincoln Bridge connecting Louisville with Jeffersonville, Ind., is scheduled to open before daybreak Monday. But tomorrow, people will have the opportunity to walk across the bridge. Access will be from Jeffersonville.

I remember walking bridges around here in the Huntington area when they were closed to traffic because they were about to open or about to close.There was the Silver Memorial Bridge in 1977, closed because of butt weld cracks (I always have to say and type that carefully), the East Huntington Bridge before it opened in 1985 and the old 6th Street Bridge in Huntington after it closed in 1994.

Those of you in the Louisville area, have fun tomorrow.
