Wickliffe-Cairo Bridge Reopens
By West Kentucky Star Staff
WICKLIFFE, KY - The Wickliffe-Cairo Bridge was reopened to traffic on Thursday afternoon.

Kentucky highway personnel spent much of Thursday clearing drift and checking the levee and roadway for possible damage caused by floodwaters. With the bridge now open, it will eliminate a detour of approximately 80 miles.

The bridge connecting Kentucky to Illinois had been closed since last Friday due to flooding which limited the access to the bridge on the Kentucky side for drivers on US 51, 60 and 62.
