Brookport Bridge Still Closed Due to Ice
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The US 45 Ohio River Brookport Bridge remains closed due to icing on the bridge deck.

The bridge between Paducah and Brookport has been shut down since Friday.

The bridge has a metal grated deck that cools down quickly and allows ice to form on the steel.

More snow and bitter cold temperatures through midweek could keep the bridge closed for the time being.
