No. 5 on this Ohio River Bridges Project map shows the East End Crossing project landed by a joint venture of Vinci, Walsh, and Bilfinger Berger. The new $763-million bridge will connect Gene Snyder Freeway KY841 with the Lee Hamilton Highway IN265.
Indiana Finance Authority expects to get the new East End Crossing of the Ohio River near Louisville, Kent., built for $763 million, or 23 percent below its estimates, opening eight months before the expected June 2017 date. This is the commitment of the chosen group, WVB East End Partners in which the equity members are Walsh Investors LLC, Vinci Concessions SAS, Bilfinger Berger PI International GmbH.
The contract is for design-build of a river crossing which will complete a loop around the north side of the bi-state Louisville-Jeffersonville metro area on the Kentucky and and Indiana sides of the Ohio river.
Kentucky is responsible for the Downtown Crossing portion of the Bridges project, which already has a clear bidding leader.
