New traffic pattern on Brent Spence Bridge

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Drivers are waking up this morning to a new traffic pattern on both decks of the Brent Spence Bridge.

The two center lanes are now closed.

Drivers can only take the right lane before the bridge to use the exits for 5th and 12th streets in Covington.

Also now closed:

  • The on-ramp from Fort Washington Way to the Brent Spence Bridge
  • The on-ramp from Third Street to southbound Interstate 71/75
  • The exits from southbound I-71/75 to KY 236 (184, 184A and 184B)

Transportation officials began closing lanes on the bridge earlier this summer as part of maintenance work expected to last through most of August.
