CAIRO – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said Thursday traffic will reduce to one lane on the U.S. 51 Ohio River “Cairo” Bridge between Wickliffe, Kentucky and Cairo starting Monday.
The lane reduction is necessary for a detailed inspection of the bridge structure.
The work zone will be in place from 8 a.m. to about 4 p.m. each day. Flaggers will control traffic and there will be a maximum 10 ft. load width restriction in this work zone.
Farmers and businesses with wide loads will be able to cross the bridge during daylight hours prior to the start of, or after the end of the daily inspection work.
The target completion date for all inspection work on the U.S. 51 Ohio River “Cairo” Bridge is Sept. 1.
