By WestKyStar Staff
WICKLIFFE, KY - Traffic is restricted to one lane this week on the US 51/US 60/US 62 Ohio River Bridge between Wickliffe, KY, and Cairo, IL, during daylight hours.
This lane restriction is to allow daytime maintenance and electrical work on the bridge. Drivers can expect to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers from about 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Thursday through June 28th.
Motorists should be alert for equipment, flaggers, and maintenance workers on the bridge deck. Delays should be around 5 minutes.
Farmers who need to move oversize equipment across the bridge or truckers hauling wide loads should contact the KYTC Paducah office at 270-898-2431 during normal business hours to make special arrangements to travel through this work zone.
