We are a City of Many Bridges.

From the Cairo Ohio River Bridge to the Shawneetown Bridge we are indeed a city of many bridges over the mighty Ohio River. Here is a mantra to remember this winter…The Bridge Freezes Before the Road. If you remember BFBR you may drive more safely this winter in the Louisville area.

Perhaps the most dangerous types of road icing in our metropolitan area comes from bridges and overpasses. Here is the reason, you see… a bridge is exposed to air on all of its surfaces - on top, underneath and on its sides. Conversely, a normal road surface is only exposed to air on one side, its top surface.

As you cross a Louisville bridge and you encounter Black Ice please tap your brakes and steer in the direction of your slide. It may avoid a tow to our body shop. If you need us, we have been here for nearly 60 winters. We are The Don Embry Body Shop located at 8272 Dixie Hwy. in Louisville. Visit us on the web at or call (502) 935-1373.
