Eggners Ferry Bridge to Reopen Ahead of Schedule

Officials say western Kentucky’s Eggners Ferry Bridge will reopen Friday, two-and-a-half days ahead of schedule.

The bridge, which carries US 68 and KY 80 traffic across Kentucky Lake, has been closed since it was struck by a cargo ship on January 26.

Crews have been conducting emergency repairs on the 80 year old span. The incident forced some motorists to take a long detour around the closure.
