Kentucky transportation officials say further movement has been detected in approach spans at an old western Kentucky bridge over the Tennessee River.
The Transportation Cabinet said Tuesday that the approach spans showed 2.25 inches of vertical and horizontal movement in the past 48 hours.
The cabinet says the public should avoid the area and also says it will place solar-powered navigation lights in case power is lost by an additional drop.
The cabinet is also working to expedite the bridge's demolition.
