BRIDGE DAMAGED
Kentucky officials say large truck likely hit Ohio River bridge structure, impose 20-ton limit

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 5:44 PM EDT
PADUCAH, Ky.


State officials are seeking information about damage done to a western Kentucky bridge that spans the Ohio River.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the Brookport bridge in Paducah was structurally damaged earlier this week, but officials don't know who did it.

Inspectors went to the bridge Wednesday to check on a report that a section of railing had been damaged. They determined that something had hit a portion of the bridge superstructure. District 1 Chief Engineer Mike McGregor says he believes a truck crossed the bridge with an oversized load and struck a support beam.

The bridge is along U.S. 45 between Paducah and Brookport, Illinois.

Officials have placed a 20-ton vehicle limit on the bridge, meaning no large trucks will be able to cross.
