Ironton-Russell Bridge Closed Until Noon Today
Chillicothe - The Ironton-Russell Bridge will be closed Friday, August 29, from 8:30 a.m. to noon for a scheduled rehabilitation project.
Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be working on the bridge during the morning hours as weather permits. Due to the contract agreement, though, the bridge will be reopened at noon today, and will remain open through the Labor Day weekend. Closure of the bridge will then resume at noon Tuesday, September 2.
Throughout the project, the bridge will be subject to daytime-only closure, from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with it open to evening and overnight travel. During any period of closure, motorists will be detoured by way of U.S. Route 52 and the Ashland (Kentucky) Bridge.
The project continues through October 31.
