The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a moving work zone lane restriction on the US 45 Ohio River “Brookport” Bridge at Paducah, Kentucky on Wednesday, April 25.

Drivers should be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers along a short section of the bridge deck. 

Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the road working close to traffic.

All Kentucky bridges get a detailed inspection every two years with long-span lane and river bridges getting an extra walk-through inspection annually.

The bridge connects Paducah, Ky. and Brookport, Ill.
