Traffic restricted at new Ledbetter Bridge Tuesday

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict westbound traffic to one lane on the new U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

This lane restriction for westbound traffic only is to allow KyTC personnel, area news media and the public to observe round one of controlled explosive demolition on the old Ledbetter Bridge scheduled for 8 a.m. Tuesday, weather permitting.

All westbound traffic along U.S. 60 on the bridge approaches and bridge deck will be moved to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone. There will be no stopping allowed on the bridge in this work zone.

Motorists who regularly travel across the new U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter between 6 and about 10 a.m. should consider allowing extra travel time for the Tuesday morning commute, as traffic congestion is likely in the area due to preparations for the first of several controlled explosive detonations on the old Ledbetter Bridge..

Motorists should use extra caution due to personnel on the bridge in close proximity to traffic flow. There will be an enhanced enforcement presence in this work zone.

Old Ledbetter Bridge to be detonated Tuesday

A detonation is planned this week to explode the George Rogers Clark Memorial Bridge, commonly known as Old Ledbetter Bridge. The explosion is set for 8 a.m. Tuesday and viewing areas will be arranged by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet on the new U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge. A safety zone will be enforced around the bridge, which means the public may not come within 1,500 feet of the blast site. Property owners are permitted to stay in their homes, but may not go outdoors after 7 a.m., or an hour before the blast.

Lloyd Road near Crayne to close

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close Lloyd Road in the Crayne area of Crittenden County starting Saturday.

Lloyd Road will be closed to allow paving through what will be the eventual intersection with the new U.S. 641.  Prep work and paving at this site is expected to take about a week to complete, weather permitting. There will be no marked detour.

Grade and drain work along about a 6-mile section of new U.S. 641 between Marion and Fredonia is expected to be completed this year with paving of two lanes along the new alignment planned for late 2015.
