US 45 Ohio River ‘Brookport’ Bridge Back Open

BROOKPORT/PADUCAH – The U.S. 45 Ohio River “Brookport” Bridge between Paducah and Brookport reopened Sunday afternoon after being closed since Feb. 10 due to icing on the metal decking.

Temperatures above freezing Sunday morning helped to melt the remaining ice from the bridge deck according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet office in Paducah.
