OHIO CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will conduct a routine safety inspection of the Rockport Bridge over the Green River on US 62 in Ohio County Wednesday from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm.

Officials say during this period, flaggers will manage lane restrictions to ensure a safe environment for motorists and inspection personnel.

Drivers are urged to exercise caution and adhere to reduced speed limits.

The inspection will include a climbing team for manual assessments, unmanned aerial vehicles for detailed imaging, an under-bridge inspection vehicle for assessments beneath the bridge and a mobile platform truck for inspections at various elevations.

These measures are essential for thoroughly evaluating the bridge’s overall condition.
