PADUCAH— The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the U.S. 45 Ohio River "Brookport" Bridge is reopened to traffic.

The bridge, located between Paducah, Kentucky and Brookport, Illinois, closed February 10 due to icing on the metal decking.  

KYTC said above freezing  temperatures this morning helped to melt the remaining ice from the bridge deck.

The bridge reopened to traffic just after 2 p.m. today.
