Opening of new Eggners Ferry Bridge back on for this afternoon

Change of plan, the new Eggners Ferry Bridge will be opening today.

Last night, we got word from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet that the bridge would not be opening because of weather and other factors.

A news release said the bridge would be rescheduled to open next week.

This morning, we got word that the bridge will be opening this afternoon.

Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says crews work throughout the night and into this morning to finish work on a few tasks.

The bridge is expected to open between about Noon and 3:00 p.m.

No formal ceremony is planned.
