A routine inspection process is underway at the Eggners Ferry Bridge on the Trigg-Marshall County line this week, which will cause a lane restriction.
The bridge, which was made famous in January when it was struck by a cargo vessel, will undergo an “arms’ length inspection” this week, meaning state inspectors will look at every aspect of the structure to be sure it’s sound.
Highway Department Spokesman Keith Todd says the current inspection would have been done even if there hadn’t been a collision.
Todd says motorists should slow down when approaching and crossing and says there is an 8-foot width restriction.
The entire inspection process is expected to take about a week. The Eggners Ferry Bridge takes about 2,600 vehicles across Kentucky Lake on an average day.
