Ledbetter Bridge Inspection Today
By WestKyStar Staff
LEDBETTER, KY - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the US 68 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter today.
This lane restriction is to allow another inspection of the bridge structure.
The Ledbetter Bridge has been on an accelerated inspection schedule since it was restricted to a 3-ton load limit in January.
Traffic will be restricted to one lane starting at about 9:00 am Thursday, and work is expected to take about 3 to 4 hours to complete.
Alternating traffic flow will be controlled by flaggers. Travel delays should be minimal, generally be less than 4 minutes.
The bridge should be open to normal traffic by about 1:00 pm.
