Kentucky-To-Illinois Bridge Reopened

The bridge connecting Kentucky to Illinois in Brookport is open again.

The U.S. 45 Ohio River Bridge opened yesterday after being closed since Tuesday night. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the bridge was closed due to ice collecting on the metal decking of the bridge.

A personnel check yesterday afternoon determined enough ice had melted for the bridge to reopen.
