Repair Work to Close Russell Viaduct July 25-28

Beginning Tuesday, July 25, and continuing through Friday, July 28, the Ruseel Viaduct on KY 244 will be closed day and night as structures and maintenance crews with the Kentucky Department of Highways patch the pavement and repair parts of the bridge along the roadway center line. Motorists should use caution through the KY 244/US 23/Ironton-Russell bridge intersection, follow signs, and barrels marking lane closures, and use US 23 and Ferry Street or other routes to detour. Emergency vehicle traffic such as ambulances or fire trucks will not be affected. The repair work is necessary to extend the life of the bridge; a replacement project has been designed and is moving toward construction.
