Barriers remain in place to keep drivers off the structure.

KSP would like to remind everyone that altering a traffic control device or barrier is punishable per state statute.

According to KRS, “a person shall not attempt to or in fact alter, twist, deface, injure, knock down, or interfere with the effective operation of any official traffic control device or signal, or any part thereof.”

As a reminder, KSP said the barriers are to ensure the safety of the residents and others traveling along the route near the New Salem Bridge.
