60/62 Ohio River Bridge restricted to one lane for inspection

(KFVS) -

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the US 51/US 60/US 62 OHIO River Bridge on Friday, October 18, 2013.

This lane restriction is to allow a walk-through inspection of the bridge deck. All Kentucky bridges get a detailed inspection every two years with long-span bridges getting additional inspections on an annual basis.

Motorists should be prepared to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers between about 8:00 a.m. and 12 Noon, CDT, on Friday. There will be no load width restrictions.

Motorists are asked to use appropriate caution where inspectors and flaggers will be working on the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow. Delays should be minimal, generally less than 4 minutes.
