Roebling Bridge CLOSED As Ice Strikes Northern Kentucky

UPDATE: The Roebling Bridge reopened at 8 a.m. in both directions


ORIGINAL POST:

The Roebling Suspension Bridge between Covington and Cincinnati is closed Thursday due to the ice storm hammering Northern Kentucky.

The weather situation has impacted traffic across the region, with most issues being swiftly addressed. At one point Thursday, the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge and I-275 westbound at Madison Pike were both closed due to accidents but have since reopened.

Multiple school districts across Northern Kentucky closed or issued delays because of the ice.

The National Weather Service issued an Ice Storm Warning on Thursday until noon. The NWS predicts that the region could see around three-tenths of an inch of ice.

Travel is discouraged unless necessary, the National Weather Service said.
