Feature: Downtown Bridge Project

National Register Evaluation, Data Recovery, and Exploratory Trenching for the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges (LSIORB) Downtown Bridge Project At the request of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), CRA completed National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) evaluations for six previously documented sites (Site 15Jf813–15Jf817 and 15Jf820), additional data recovery investigations at Site 15Jf813, and exploratory trenching at Parcel 155 (later subsumed within Site 15Jf813) associated with the LSIORB Downtown Bridge Project in Jefferson County, Kentucky. During the investigations, KYTC requested that CRA complete the work in 7 weeks rather than the planned 14 weeks, in order to ensure that KYTC would not have to pay additional fees to the Design-Build contractor. CRA not only mobilized additional personnel and fulfilled KYTC’s request, but they finished ahead of the revised schedule.
