PERIODIC SINGLE-LANE CLOSURES EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ON THE BRIDGE THROUGH MID-NOVEMBER
Although the 24/7 multi-lane closures on the Brent Spence Bridge end next week, maintenance work will continue through mid-November. Periodic lane closures will be necessary throughout November to complete work on the bridge. Efforts will be made to limit lane closures to one lane at a time and to implement the closures during night-time hours only. Once scheduled, information about upcoming lane closures will be posted on BrentSpence2017.org and on the project's Facebook page and Twitter feed.
