lane restrictions bridge 300HENDERSON, Ky. (4/19/13) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict southbound traffic to one lane on the US 41 Twin Bridges between Henderson and Evansville on Monday, April 22.

This southbound lane restriction is to allow the repair of a section hand railing that was knocked off the bridge by a recent traffic crash.

Southbound traffic will be restricted to one lane starting at about 8:30 a.m., CDT, on Monday. The lane restriction is expected to be in place about 3 to 5 hours to allow the railing repairs.

The US 41 Twin Bridges, also known as the Bi-State Viet Nam Gold Star Memorial Bridges, are located at US 41 mile point 19.649 about a mile south of the Kentucky-Indiana State Line. They carry approximately 37,000 vehicles per day across the Ohio River between Henderson and Evansville, Ind.

The bridges are located about a mile downstream from the confluence of the Green River and the Ohio River at Ohio River navigation mile point 786.8.

The northbound bridge was opened to traffic on July 4, 1932. The southbound bridge was opened to traffic on December 16,1965.
