FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 4, 2014) - An Interstate 75 bridge in Whitley County has been reduced to one lane after crews found a crack in one of the steel bridge beams.
The bridge is on northbound I-75 at mile point 27 over Lynn Camp Creek near Corbin. During a routine bridge inspection today a crack in one of the steel bridge girders was found. An emergency repair plan is being put in place. Until the repair is completed, a lane closure for the left lane of the bridge will remain in place.
The bridge has four large beams underneath, and traffic will be diverted from traveling over the beam needing repair, reducing the weight on the affected beam.
The right northbound lane will remain open to traffic. However, over-dimensional loads larger than 12 feet wide will be detoured. Also, all vehicles more than 80,000 pounds are being detoured. The detour is from Exit 25 at Corbin via U.S. 25W north to the Corbin Bypass KY 3041, north on U.S. 25E and then back on I-75 at Exit 29.
Appropriate signage will be in place to alert and guide the traveling public.
All bridges in the Commonwealth are inspected at least every two years. Some bridges are inspected more frequently, depending on age, type and design.
It is not yet known how long the lane will be closed.
Dial 511 or log on to 511.ky.gov for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
