The U.S. 68/Ky. 80 Lake Barkley Bridge at Canton in Trigg County has been restricted to one lane of traffic until Thursday to allow deck maintenance and patching, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
Motorists should be prepared to encounter one lane traffic between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. today through Thursday.
The bridge serves as the eastern entrance to Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area.
PCL Civil Construction of Denver is the prime contractor on the $128.3 million project to construct a new Lake Barkley Bridge.
The new bridge is expected to be ready for two-lane traffic sometime in the spring of 2018 with finish work on the new bridge continuing through 2018.
