U.S. 51 Ohio River Bridge at Cairo Reopens

CAIRO – The U.S 51 Ohio River bridge between Cairo and Wickliffe, Kentucky is back open after being shut down for a few days due to floodwater over the Kentucky approach to the bridge.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials reopened the bridge at 3:15 Thursday afternoon after cleaning debris, checking the roadway for possible damage and checking and repairing the levee at the Kentucky end of the bridge.
