Motorists traveling on US 60 need to be aware of a lane and load width restriction Tuesday on the Green River Bridge at Spottsville in Henderson County.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials report the work zone lane and 9 foot load width restriction is to allow a detailed inspection of the bridge structure that will include a climb team on the bridge, as well as a snooper truck.
Motorists should be prepared to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers beginning around 8:00 Tuesday morning to approximately 3:00 Tuesday afternoon, weather permitting.

The Spottsville Bridge is located at US 60 near the 19 mile marker in Henderson County and is also known as the Richard W. Owen Memorial Bridge. The 797 foot long structure was built as a toll bridge and opened to traffic in 1931 and the toll booths were removed in August 1945.
