The Interstate 24 Ohio River Bridge is back open.

It was shut down for a short time at the request of the U.S. Coast Guard.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, a couple of fuel barges broke free from their moorings and were floating near the bridge.

Those barges are secure now and the bridge is back open to traffic.
