Weight restriction lifted on Roebling bridge

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has lifted the weight restriction on the Roebling Bridge and the 11 ton weight limit has been restored.

A routine inspection conducted on October 18, 2012, showed some deterioration on one of the beams which led KYTC officials to impose a 3-ton weight restriction.

During the weight restriction, commuter trolleys were not allowed on the bridge.

On Thursday, the repairs were completed and the bridge passed it's final inspection.
