Traffic Stop on Eggners Ferry Bridge Today
By West Kentucky Star Staff
AURORA, KY - A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to temporarily halt westbound traffic today on the US 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge starting about 1:00 pm.
The contractor is removing some of the heavy equipment used in construction of the new bridge over Kentucky Lake during the last two years. They plan to pull a barge up to the shoreline and offload some equipment to a waiting truck. This will require the westbound lanes to be blocked for about 20 minutes.
Westbound drivers should be prepared to encounter flaggers controlling traffic at the site.
