Brookport Bridge to Remain Closed as Unexpected Repairs Get Underway

KTC – The Brookport Bridge is set to be closed for much longer than expected after contractors asked for more time to make repairs. The bridge, which was closed last Wednesday, was expected to re-open after about a week, but the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced yesterday that additional time is needed and that the closure may last closer to 30 days. The inspectors stated that repair work was needed for one of the bridge’s main spans. Drivers who normally take the US 45 Ohio River Brookport Bridge between Kentucky and Illinois should detour via the Interstate 24 Ohio River Bridge until further notice.
