Brookport Bridge closed due to winter weather

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY — Sheriff’s dispatch in McCracken County, Kentucky says the U.S. 45 Ohio River Bridge, also known as the Brookport Bridge, is closed due to winter weather.

We received the phone call just before 2:00 a.m. on Friday. The dispatcher says the sleet has already iced over the bridge and it’s too dangerous to travel on. It’s unclear when the bridge will reopen.

We will update this story when we receive more information.
