Shawneetown bridge back open to all traffic
A bridge connecting Morganfield, Kentucky with Shawneetown, Illinois is back open ahead of schedule.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the KY 56/Illinois Route 13 Ohio River "Shawneetown" Bridge is back open to all traffic.
Crews were working on deck rehabilitation and got done early.
A temporary ferry was set up to help farmers move large equipment while the bridge was under construction.
Now that farmers can use the bridge again, the ferry will not be available.
