Traffic on the U.S. 68-KY 80 Eggners’ Ferry Bridge will be restricted to one lane westbound starting Tuesday morning so a detailed inspection can be taken of the bridge structure.
All Kentucky bridges get a detailed inspection every two years as part of a federally mandated bridge safety program. All long-span lake and river bridges in Kentucky get an extra walk-through inspection annually.
Westbound motorists should expect to encounter one lane traffic between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., each day. Be alert for slowing and merging traffic as you approach the bridge where all westbound traffic will move to the left-hand or passing lane. Some lane restrictions may be required for eastbound traffic on Thursday or Friday.
Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and inspection personnel are along the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow.
