By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Traffic is flowing again on the I-24 Bridge between Paducah and Metropolis.

Traffic was stopped in both directions as a precaution shortly after 2 pm, and a person at McCracken Co. 911 Dispatch said it came after some barges broke loose on the Ohio River. 

The barges were contained and the bridge re-opened just before 2:30 pm.
