Ohio River Bridge Reopening Between Kentucky, Illinois


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says an Ohio River bridge that has been closed for almost four weeks will reopen this week, five days ahead of schedule. 

The “Cairo” Bridge serves as a north-south connection for U.S. 51 between Wickliffe in western Kentucky and Cairo, Illinois. It is also an east-west transportation corridor for U.S. 60 and U.S. 62. The bridge carries about 7,000 vehicles per day.

The cabinet says a contractor plans to reopen the bridge to one-lane traffic sometime Wednesday. The bridge will continue to be restricted to one lane with alternating flow controlled by an automated signal until around Oct. 1.
