Eastbound lanes of I-24 Ohio River Bridge back open after semi crash
(KBSI) – The eastbound lanes of the Interstate 24 Ohio River Bridge from Illinois into Kentucky are open at the site of a crash involving two semi trucks.
The trucks were removed and the site cleared to allow eastbound traffic from Illinois into Kentucky between Metropolis and Paducah to be restored.
All lanes of I-24 at the Ohio River Bridge are now open to normal traffic flow, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
At one point the eastbound lanes of the I-24 Ohio River Bridge from Illinois into Kentucky were blocked.
The crash happened the morning of April 8.
Commercial trucks are not allowed on the Brookport Bridge due to a 15-ton load limit, a 9 ft-6 inch height restriction, and an 8 ft. maximum width restriction.
