Ohio River Bridge at Cairo to Re-Open Early

Aug 25, 2020

The Ohio River bridge that connects Cairo and Wickliffe, Kentucky will re-open this week, five days ahead of schedule.

The bridge has been closed for almost four weeks. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a contractor plans to reopen the bridge to one-lane traffic sometime Wednesday. The bridge will continue to be restricted to one lane with alternating flow controlled by an automated signal until around October 1.

The bridge carries about 7,000 vehicles per day.
