The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans daytime lane restrictions on the US 41 Twin Bridges TODAY..
The lane restriction from approximately 9:00 a.m. to approximately 3:30 p.m., CDT, is to allow maintenance work on the bridge navigation lights. A regular check last night indicated a problem with the lights that are critical to river traffic and require immediate repair.
Motorists should be alert for slowing and merging traffic on the bridge approach. Caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and personnel are on the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow.
The US 41 Twin Bridges, also known as the Bi-State Viet Nam Gold Star Memorial Bridges, are located at US 41 mile point 19.649 about a mile south of the Kentucky-Indiana State Line. They carry approximately 37,000 vehicles per day across the Ohio River between Henderson, KY, and Evansville, IN.
The bridges are located about a mile downstream from the confluence of the Green River and the Ohio River at Ohio River navigation mile point 786.8.
The northbound bridge was opened to traffic on July 4, 1932. The southbound bridge was opened to traffic on December 16, 1965.
