(FRANKFORT, KY) -- Kentucky Transportation Cabinet bridge inspectors were dispatched early today to check bridges and roadways to ensure safety.
That followed a 5.2 magnitude earthquake, centered in West Salem, Ill., that was felt in many areas of Kentucky. No quake damage has been detected at this point.
"Our inspections are being conducted strictly out of an abundance of caution," said Nancy Albright, director for the cabinet's Division of Maintenance. "There is really no fear that any damage has been done to our structures. However, we do want to be absolutely certain of the continued integrity of our bridges."
Bridge inspections are being conducted in the Paducah, Henderson and Louisville highway districts. Some are strictly in response to public calls or concerns. Inspections have been done as follows.
Travelers may encounter lane restrictions and traffic delays while bridges are inspected. Inspections will continue until all concerns are addressed.
Transportation Cabinet representatives have also been dispatched to the Emergency Operations Center at the Boone National Guard Armory, in Frankfort, and are stationed, as always, in the Transportation Operations Center.
