Posted: Updated:
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY - You'll be able to drive over the Brookport Bridge by lunchtime this afternoon.

The bridge will reopen to traffic by 11 AM as the repairs to the bridge have been completed.

A contractor the City of Paducah completed work on the section of US 45 leading to the bridge as part of the tunnel construction of the Paducah Greenway Trail beneath he highway.

A paint truck is making the final traffic striping of the section of pavement over the new tunnel. 

Construction to connect the tunnel to the Greenway Trail will continue, but the project has advanced enough to allow the Brookport Bridge to reopen to traffic.

The Bridge had been closed since July 8th for construction of the Greenway Trail as well as replacing two additional damaged beams on the bridge superstructure.
