Bridge to Re-Open Today

The U.S. 68/KY U.S. 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge repairs have been completed and state officials have sent word the span is to be reopened today.

9:00 UPDATE

As Kentucky Transportation officials and contractors finalize work to re-open the Eggners Ferry Bridge today, the span will be open to pedestrian and bike traffic beginning this morning at nine.  KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says anyone visiting the bridge should park off of the roadway and will still need to be careful as crews continue clean-up and finishing work.  There is an event scheduled for noon in the middle of the new span, and visitors will need to be off the bridge by 1 p.m.  Officials are hoping to have the crossing open to vehicle traffic at that time.  Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear says he’s pleased repairs will be completed ahead of the May 27th deadline and by a Kentucky company.
