OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - If you're heading into or out of Owensboro on Saturday, here's some information you need to know.

The Blue Bridge will be shut down from 9:00 a.m. CST to 2:00 p.m. for a Bridge Day event.

Only pedestrians will be able to use the bridge during that time.

There will be a marked detour via the US 231 Natcher Bridge.  The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says it will add about 10 miles to a trip between Reo, Indiana, and downtown Owensboro.
