COVINGTON, Ky. (WXIX) - The morning commute could be disrupted on Tuesday when three 117-foot-long trucks come through downtown Covington.

The semis are hauling 96,000-pound concrete beams that will be used for a pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks at 11th Street.

“No Parking” signs will be posted along the route and vehicles that ignore the signs will be towed.

Here is the route for the trucks once they arrive around 10-10:30 a.m.:

  • Trucks will arrive in Covington at the 12 Street exit;
  • Head north on Simon Kenton Way;
  • Travel east on Pike Street;
  • Go east on Seventh Street;
  • Then south on Scott Street;
  • West on West 10th street;
  • Ending on Washington Street

A crane will unload the beams once the semis arrive on Washington Street.
