Restrictions planned for Lake Barkley bridge

Staff report

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced Friday that it plans to place a lane and load width restriction on the U.S. 68/Ky. 80 Lake Barkley bridge at Canton in Trigg County starting Monday.

The restrictions will be made to allow deck patching and joint repair work on the Lake Barkley bridge at U.S. 68 mile point 8.824, according to a traffic advisory sent by cabinet spokesman Keith Todd.

Todd advised motorists to be prepared to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by an automated signal. The work zone will include an 8-foot load width restriction that will exclude most trucks.

The cabinet expects the work zone to be in place around the clock on weekdays through about Aug. 20, but it won't be up on the intervening Saturday and Sunday.

The U.S. 68/Ky. 80 Cumberland River/Lake Barkley bridge - also known as the Lawrence Memorial Bridge and the Canton Bridge - carries about 3,800 vehicles across Lake Barkley/the Cumberland River in an average day, according to the cabinet.
