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.
