As engineers finalize repair plans for the Eveleigh Bridge on KY 259 near the Grayson/Breckinridge County line, crews will be conducting another inspection on Tuesday, requiring closure of the bridge.
No traffic will be able to pass between 8am and 2pm CST. Normally, these inspections would occur under a lane closure. With one lane already closed, the inspection will require full closure.
While the initial inspection last week was focused on a specific beam, a more detailed analysis of the entire structure will take place before a project is let for the repair so that any additional issues can be addressed under the same project contract. This is a common practice with repairs of this nature.
Motorists should utilize KY 737 as a detour during the closure. It is possible the inspection will be complete before 2pm. Traffic will be allowed to resume alternating one-way passage as soon as engineers finish.
