HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - Day three of slow rolling on the Twin Bridges saw just as much congestion along the southbound side from Veterans Memorial Parkway down toward Ellis Park.

The lane closure on the southbound side that started Monday is causing a big delay for drivers making their daily commute.

Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said on Wednesday that their initial plan to reduce traffic to one southbound lane caused too many delays, so they’re adjusting plans.

Now, they’ll be working on filling in a median just before the bridges to allow a third lane to open on the northbound bridge.

The adjustment will see the bridge have two northbound lanes and one southbound lane in addition to the already open southbound lane.

Officials said that they hope to have work completed on the workaround by Friday.
