HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - The northbound Twin Bridge is undergoing inspections through at least Friday, Aug. 5.

The work is being done by a contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

It requires lane closures twice per day – 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. CDT and 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. – to accommodate equipment.

There will be no lane closure on Saturday after 3 p.m.

For the last few days, the inspections have caused traffic backups.

“You know what they needed to do, you know they had a big sign out there, you know they needed to have it out there about four days in advance,” Henderson Mayor Steve Austin said.

On Friday, traffic was backed up for miles in the northbound lanes of Highway 41.

Starting next week, crews will be undergoing inspections at the same times on the southbound bridge.
