 History & Overview

Construction to replace the Ironton-Russell Bridge in Lawrence County is nearly complete, and the new bridge is now open to traffic! The project is the relocation of the bridge that connects Ironton, Ohio, with Russell, Kentucky, between Second and Jefferson streets in downtown Ironton and the U.S. 23 viaduct south of Russell. The project also includes demolition of the existing bridge upon completion of the new one.

 Traffic Impacts


As the new Ironton-Russell Bridge has been opened to traffic, there should be little impact to motorists in the construction zones in Ohio and Kentucky. Crews will have finishing work to complete during the next few months; however, traffic impacts should be minimal, and traffic will be maintained at all times. In addition, the former Ironton-Russell Bridge has been closed to traffic, and demolition of the structure is under way.
