As part of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s yearly bridge inspection program, the Simon Kenton Memorial Bridge (US 62) in downtown Maysville will be closed next Tuesday for several hours.

Weather permitting, engineers will close the Ohio River bridge Tuesday, July 21, at 9 a.m. to inspect the steel support towers, main suspension cable, and other structural components. The bridge should reopen by 3 p.m. or when inspections are complete.

While the bridge is closed, traffic should detour using the William H. Harsha Bridge (US 68) three miles west of Maysville to connect between Kentucky and US 52 or US 62 in Ohio.
