Lane restrictions scheduled for Shawneetown Bridge - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

Lane restrictions scheduled for Shawneetown Bridge

Posted: Updated:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the KY Hwy 56/Illinois Route 13 Ohio River Bridge at Shawneetown on Thursday.

This lane restriction is to allow inspectors to access the bridge structure with a Snooper Truck.

Drivers should be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers from about 8:00 a.m. to about 5:00 p.m., on Thursday. 

The inspection work may continue into Friday, if required.

KYTC officials say placement of the Snooper Truck on the bridge deck will prohibit some oversized loads on Thursday.
