An electrical engineering firm is set to inspect the 112 lights atop the Glover H. Cary Bridge in downtown Owensboro.  That means drivers should expect delays all of next week, beginning Monday. 

The Messenger-Inquirer reports the lights on the top of the bridge haven’t been turned back on since the bridge was closed for re-painting in the spring of 2013.  The bridge re-opened in November, but the lights remain off, pending inspection to make sure they meet current National Electrical Code standards.

The traffic lanes on the bridge are illuminated by street lamps.
