CINCINNATI – The Brent Spence Bridge could reopen as early as Tuesday afternoon, according to a statement from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

KYTC says the reopening of various lanes and ramp closures will be announced Tuesday morning.

Gov. Andy Beshear said in his Monday COVID-19 press briefing the repairs are also likely to finish under budget.

The bridge, a major commuter route and pivotal freight thoroughfare, has been closed since a semi with hazardous materials caught fire early on Nov.

KYTC said Monday evening final inspections of the bridge had been completed, confirming the bridge is safe for travel.

Final repair work is currently underway, including lane striping on the upper and lower decks, equipment removal and other minor maintenance items, KYTC says.
