TRAFFIC ALERT: Walk-Through Inspections on Ohio River Bridges Starting Next Week

MADISONVILLE, Ky. 8/9/21 –  The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) have scheduled their annual walk-through inspections of Ohio River bridges starting next week.

All bridges on public roadways get a detailed inspection every two years, with long-span river and lake bridges getting an annual walk-through inspection. KYTC and INDOT engineers/inspectors use these annual walk-through inspections to discuss bridge maintenance projects that may be planned on the various structures, as well review any long-term maintenance efforts that may be required in the future. Generally, one of the state highway agencies will be responsible for maintenance of a specific bridge with the neighboring state providing half of the funding.

Motorists should be alert for daytime work zone lane restrictions at the following locations:

  • MONDAY, August 16 from 9 a.m. to about 2 p.m., CDT

U.S. 41 Twin Bridges at Henderson/Evansville starting on the southbound bridge then moving to northbound – All traffic moved to the left-hand or passing lane.

  • TUESDAY, August 17 from 9 a.m. to about 11:30 a.m., CDT

U.S. 231 Ohio River “William Natcher” Bridge at Owensboro – Northbound only with traffic moved to the left-hand or passing lane.

  • TUESDAY, August 17 from 1 p.m., CDT, to about 3 p.m.
