PADUCAH, Ken. – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to temporarily close the U.S. 45 Ohio River “Brookport” Bridge between Paducah, KY, and Brookport, IL, Thursday morning.
The bridge will close promptly at 9 a.m. and remain closed until 11 a.m. Thursday.
Officals said the temporary closure is to allow repairs to the overhead signage and right-of-way maintenance work on the bridge approaches. Due to the placement of a bucket truck to facilitate the overhead sign work, the bridge will have to be closed to all traffic.
There will be no marked detour. However, motorists are advised to self-detour via the Interstate 24 Ohio River Bridge.
