(KFVS) -

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Illinois Department of Transportation will be conducting annual bridge inspections.

US 51/US 60/US 62 Ohio River Bridge between Wickliffe, KY, and Cairo, Illinois will be inspected on Wednesday, August 7 at 9 a.m. Inspectors will mainly use work zone traffic control that is already established for the ongoing maintenance project.

US 45 Ohio River Bridge between Paducah, KY, and Brookport, Illinois will be inspected on Thursday, August 8, at 8 a.m. Short moving lane restriction with alternating flow will be controlled by flaggers to facillitate the walk-through.

Inspectors use these annual walk-through inspections to discuss and plan future maintenance activities on the various river crossings where maintenance costs are shared by the state transportation agencies.
