Abstract: The Lewis and Clark Bridge, an elegant cable-stayed bridge with diamond-shaped towers, connects highways in Indiana and Kentucky that had long been truncated and provides a clear alternative for interstate traffic seeking to bypass downtown Louisville. The complex project not only helps resolve a long-standing traffic problem but also improves safety and promotes the economic vitality of the region.
