A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to place a lane and weight restriction on the US 62/US 641 Cumberland River Bridge at Lake City starting Monday, December 3, 2012.



This lane and load restriction is to allow retrofitting of floor beams on the bridge structure.



Traffic will be restricted to one lane and a strictly enforced 12-ton load limit during the work. There will be a10 ft. load width restriction in this work zone.



This lane restriction with alternating traffic flow controlled by an automated signal will be in place around the clock. An enhanced enforcement presence has been requested for this work zone.



Due to the potential for traffic delays during peak travel periods, motorists are advised to self-detour via Interstate 24. The minimum delay is estimated at 5 to 10 minutes during the morning and afternoon commute.



Intech Contracting LLC, is the prime contractor on this $247,051 bridge maintenance project. The anticipated project completion date is January 31, 2013.



The US 62/US 641Cumberland River Bridge is at the Livingston-Lyon County Line immediately below Barkley Dam at Lake City, KY. Also, known as The Blue Bridge and the Eureka Highway Bridge, the structure carries approximately 7,000 vehicles in an average day.



The 1,466 ft. cantilevered Warren through truss bridge with a 700 ft. main span was opened to traffic in 1952. The bridge is at US 62 Livingston County mile point 2.852 and Lyon County mile point 0.0.
