View a map of the East End Bridge.
The new East End Bridge carrying traffic on I-265 will cross the Ohio River just west of
Harrods Creek on the Kentucky side to just north of Utica on the Indiana side. The section
will connect the Gene Snyder Freeway in Kentucky to the Lee Hamilton Highway in Indiana,
completing the loop on the northeast side of the Louisville/Southern Indiana metropolitan
The new cable-stayed bridge is both aesthetically pleasing and structurally efficient. Key features include:
- Two convex diamond towers rising 300 feet above the river’s normal pool
- Four highway lanes (two in each direction) with extremely broad shoulders allowing the bridge to expand to six lanes in the future by only re-striping
- A boater friendly navigational channel of 900 feet (three football fields) between the two towers
- A 13-foot-wide pedestrian/bicycle path along the downstream (west) side of the bridge
- A design that fits the rural landscape by featuring soft edges and warm gray tones matching the nearby quarry bluffs of Southern Indiana
