UPDATE, Monday (12/22/14) - The Eggners Ferry Bridge over Kentucky Lake will be closed Tuesday night from 9 PM to 5 AM Wednesday morning. 

The closure is to allow contractors to place concrete for Pier #8 as part of construction of the New Eggners Ferry Bridge. The contractor will place message boards along US 68 in Marshall and Trigg Counties and on KY 80 in Calloway County to alert the public to the overnight closure.   There will be a marked detour between Cadiz and Aurora via Interstate 24 and the Purchase Parkway. 

KYTC says expect a closure once a week for the next few months.
