Lane Restriction on US 60 Tennessee River Bridge Starting Monday, August 3
Posted: 17-Aug-2009 11:52PM CDT

From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 1 on July 28, 2009:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the US 60 Tennessee River Bridge during daylight hours starting Monday, August 3, 2009.
The lane restriction is to allow a detailed inspection of the bridge structure. Inspectors plan to restrict traffic on the bridge to one lane from approximately 8:30 a.m. to approximately 3:30 p.m., CDT, each day. Inspectors will be conducting an arms-length inspection of the bridge superstructure, deck members, and substructure. The work is expected to take about a week.
Motorists should be alert for equipment, flaggers, and inspection personnel on the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow. Appropriate caution is required.
Also known as the Ledbetter Bridge and the George Rogers Clark Memorial Bridge, the structure carries approximately 9,000 vehicles cross the Tennessee River Bridge in an average day, linking McCracken County and Livingston County at US 60 mile point 19.718.
All Kentucky bridges get a detailed arms-length inspection every two years. The US 60 Tennessee River Bridge was opened to traffic in 1931 as a toll bridge. Piers for a new bridge are currently under construction just upstream from the existing structure.
