BROOKPORT – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) office in Paducah said the U.S. 45 Ohio River “Brookport” Bridge will temporarily close Wednesday so repairs can be made to the grated metal decking and for work to be done on guardrail and other maintenance items.
KYTC engineers also plan to run maintenance checks on the navigation lighting and construct plans for future enhancements to the lighting control system.
The bridge will be closed from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday.
There will be no marked detour. Drivers may self-detour using the I-24 Ohio River Bridge.
