Traffic Alert: Lane closure extended on Spottsville Bridge

Lane closure planned Tuesday on Spottsville Bridge

HENDERSON CO., Ky. (WFIE) - A lane closure on Spottsville Bridge will last a little longer than first announced.

A contractor temporarily closed a lane on U.S. 60 on Tuesday.

The closure was supposed to be over Friday, but has been extended through Dec. 23.

Kentucky transportation officials say the closure is for the westbound direction across the bridge. They say this will also required the closure of KY 1078 and KY 2243.

A temporary signal is installed on the eastbound lane of the bridge and addresses both eastbound and westbound traffic.

According to transportation officials, the lane restriction is needed for the contractor to install shoring and barrier walls in preparation for the construction of the bridge substructure on the west side of the Green River.

Officials are advising motorists to give themselves extra travel time if you have to take the bridge.
