Roebling Suspension Bridge to Be Closed at Least a Week

This story has been updated.

The Roebling Suspension Bridge will be closed for at least a week after a single-vehicle crash caused damage to the structure late Tuesday night.

The bridge was closed during the Wednesday morning rush hour causing a disruption to the usual traffic pattern for many Covington commuters heading to downtown Cincinnati.

Originally, tke Kentucky Transportation Cabinet - District 6 office said that engineers would inspect the bridge when daylight arrived. They found that the crash bent a beam on the bridge.

District 6 officials said it could be at least a week before repairs are completed and traffic reopens. The bridge will remain open to pedestrians.

This story will be updated when more information is known.
