FLEMINGSBURG, KY – (February 28, 2006) -- One lane of the Simon Kenton Memorial Bridge will be closed Monday, March 13 through Friday, March 17, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.  The temporary lane closure is necessary to allow the contractor to install scaffolding and safety equipment to the underside of the bridge in preparation for repairs that are scheduled for late March.     

Motorists are asked to “Drive Smart” and be alert for flaggers, workers and equipment in the work zone.  They are also reminded to slow down and to pay attention to any traffic control devices such as cones, barrels, or barriers they might encounter in the work area.  There may be delays in the work area, so drivers should plan their trips accordingly.
