Detour information for travelers to avoid collapsed US 68/KY 80 bridge
WEST KENTUCKY - The partially-collapsed US 68/KY 80 Eggner's Ferry Bridge may be causing issues for officials, but it's also a problem for the roughly 2,500 motorists who cross the bridge daily.
For those who may not be as familar with the area, here are some detour details to make it from Trigg County to Marshall or Calloway counties without crossing the bridge.
One approach is to take Interstate 24 to the Purchase Parkway.
Another possible route is to take Tenn. Hwy 79 to Hwy 140 and then take US 641 N to Murray. Also, drivers can take Hwy 79 to Hwy 119, which becomes Hwy 121 and heads to Calloway County.
These routes are general directions, but drivers can easily alter them by clicking the Google map and entering destination addresses and moving the pinned locations to map a new route.
