The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will restrict traffic to one lane on the U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter tomorrow. The restriction allows inspectors to take a close look at the bridge’s structure.  Highway engineers have been inspecting the span on an accelerated schedule since a three-ton load limit was instituted earlier this year. Transportation officials say the bridge carries more than 7,000 vehicles across the Tennessee River between Paducah and Ledbetter on an average day.

KY-1037 (also known as Gore Road and Crap Shoot Road) remains closed for the several days near Clinton due to an early morning fire on a wooden railroad overpass. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the fire mostly damaged the railing; and the fire may have been deliberately set. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Canadian National Railroad, and local officials are working to replace the bridge with a modern concrete structure. Construction is expected to start sometime late this year or early next year.
