Routine maintenance is taking place on the Brent Spence Bridge, where I-71 and I-75 cross the Ohio River. Beginning June 23, 2017, there will be lane closures and traffic impacts on the bridge and on the routes used to get around the bridge. Major impacts to traffic are expected for approximately 60 days. Overnight lane closures following the major traffic impacts will last another three months. Travelers should plan their drives in advance and know their lane if planning to travel over the bridge.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is managing this project, which is part of an ongoing program to maintain and improve the condition of the regional transportation network.
