Traffic Restricted on Green River Bridge

lane restrictions bridge 300SPOTTSVILLE, Ky. (10/1/13) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the US 60 Green River Bridge at Spottsville today.

The lane restriction with alternating traffic flow controlled by flaggers is to allow a detailed inspection of the bridge structure. The inspection team will include climbers and use of a Snooper Truck to access the lower portion of the bridge structure.

The lane restriction is expected on the Spottsville Bridge until approximately 3 p.m.

Motorists should be alert for stopped traffic on the bridge approaches.  Delays should be less than 4 minutes.

The US 60 Green River Bridge is located at US 60 mile point 19.388 in Henderson County.  Also known as the Spottsville Bridge and the Richard W. Owen Memorial Bridge, the 797 foot long structure was built as a toll bridge and opened to traffic in 1931.  Tolls were removed in August 1945.

Approximately 3,000 vehicles cross the bridge in an average day.  The US 60 Green River Bridge at Spottsville is nine miles east of the US 41 Cloverleaf at Henderson and about six miles west of the Henderson-Daviess County Line.

The Spottsville Bridge is at Green River navigation mile point 8.6.
