Work to affect traffic on Jesse Stuart Memorial Bridge

road-workWork at the Greenup locks and dam in the coming weeks will affect traffic across the Jesse Stuart Memorial Bridge (KY 10), which connects Kentucky to Ohio over the Ohio River.

Under a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet permit, contractors working for the US Army Corps of Engineers will restrict bridge traffic to one lane beginning Monday, January 23, and continuing through at least February 1. Traffic will be controlled using temporary signals, during daylight hours only. Schedules are subject to change depending on weather. Additional closures could occur later in February.

Heavy traffic across the bridge could create lengthy wait times at signals. A detour will not be marked, but motorists may seek alternate routes between Ohio and Kentucky using bridges at Ashland, Russell or Portsmouth, Ohio, to avoid the wait.
