LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Jeffersonville store owner fears that a new wall, a part of the Big 4 Bridge construction, will hurt her business.

Lynn Rhodea owns Pearl Street Treats, a frozen yogurt shop. Lynn's customers often make use of the shop's patio with a view of the bridge. As a part of new bridge construction, a wall is set to be built feet away from her store's patio, blocking the scenic view. 

Rhodea took her complaints to the construction workers as well as the mayor, Mike Moore. The two reached a compromise that has the wall tapering down from eight to four feet tall.
