Someone Drives Through Barricade at Roebling Bridge

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is asking, Why?

Someone drove a vehicle through the barricade gate at the shuttered Roebling Suspension Bridge between Covington and Cincinnati, and also threw orange barrels into the river and broke a necklace light.

KYTC District 6 repeated its call for drivers to respect the historic landmark.

The bridge has been closed to vehicles since March 20 after a car crashed into a support beam. It was closed to pedestrians soon after.

Crews have been working on repairs and expect to reopen the bridge by May 1.
