Inspection to Reduce Lanes on Heavily Traveled Bridge Between Henderson and Evansville
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says northbound traffic on the U.S. 41 Twin Bridges will be restricted to one lane, starting Monday, August 6th. A detailed inspection will be conducted on the northbound bridge structure, and engineers are expected to use a Snooper Truck to access the deck substructure on the bridge.
The Transportation Cabinet says northbound motorists can expect one lane traffic between the hours of 8:00am and 3:00pm each weekday while the inspection work is underway. Once work is completed on the northbound bridge, the inspection team is planning to start work on the southbound bridge.
The heavily-traveled structure is located about a mile south of the Kentucky-Indiana state line. About 37,000 vehicles cross the Ohio River on the structure per day.
