Lane restrictions on Shawneetown bridge for electrical work

Posted: Updated:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the KY 56/Illinois Route 13 Ohio River Bridge at Shawneetown on Tuesday, January 15, 2013.

The lane restriction is to allow electrical work on the bridge solar powered navigation lights.

Motorists can expect to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers starting about 9:00 a.m., CST, on Tuesday.  Delays should be minimal, generally less than 4 minutes.

Motorists should be prepared to encounter slowing and stopped traffic on the bridge.  Appropriate caution is required in the work zone where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel will be on the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow.

The work should be completed and the work zone removed by about 3:30 p.m., CST, on Tuesday.
