UPDATE: US 60 East Detour Set to Begin in Reed/ Beals

Henderson, Ky 11/09/21–  The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) notifies the public of a cross drain replacement on U.S. 60 at mile marker 21.8 in Henderson County. The work is now set to begin on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15th. This effort will take longer to remedy due to the magnitude of the replacement parts. The culvert is approximately 19′ in width and 40′ long.

THIS IS NOT A CLOSURE OF THE SPOTTSVILLE BRIDGE. Traffic will still be able to cross back and forth via the Spottsville Bridge but will have to detour on the Reed side of the bridge.

Message boards have been placed in Henderson near U.S. 41 and in Owensboro near the GRADD office alerting trucks to detour via the Audubon Parkway. 

Motorists can take KY 811 to Mudd Road to U.S. 60. The detour is approximately a mile and a half in length.
