Covington's 11th St. bridge to permanently close

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will be permanently closing the 11th Street Bridge in Covington on Friday, Feb. 1.

The structure is located over the CSX railroad, between Russell Street and Madison Avenue 

"Based on recent inspections, ongoing deterioration of the structure has continued," said Rob Hans, Chief District Engineer for Department of Highways District 6, in Covington.  "For future safety of the traveling public, the Cabinet made the decision that the closure of this structure is warranted."

Crews will install barriers on each end of the bridge.  Also signage will be installed to detour traffic to take Scott Street (KY 16) to 12th Street (KY 1120). 

Access to all residents and businesses will be maintained along the 11th Street Corridor.   The closure will be in place by 4:30 p.m.   

The District 6 Office made the City of Covington aware of decision to permanently close the 11th Street Bridge.  The Cabinet in conjunction with the City of Covington is currently evaluating both the 11th Street and 15th Street Corridor between Russell Street and Madison Ave. to determine future needs for crossings over the CSX railroad. 

At this time there are no plans to reopen the current 11th Street Bridge.  The north sidewalk will remain open for pedestrian use.
