Roebling Bridge May Be Closed Till June


That's when the Roebling Suspension Bridge may reopen to vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, which originally estimated that the bridge would be closed for a week, said on Monday that it is awaiting word on a final proposal for the repair.

"We estimate the repairs to be complete by June," KYTC said in a Facebook post. "Once the repairs are done, the bridge will be back open to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Until then, please respect the closure!"

The bridge was damaged in a single-vehicle crash last Tuesday. 

It immediately closed to vehicular traffic.

On Friday, KYTC shut down the bridge to pedestrians, too, noting that too many were going into areas of the bridge that are typically off limits.
