Brent Spence Bridge lane closures coming to an end

Round-the-clock lane closures for Brent Spence Bridge maintenance are coming to an end on Monday morning for southbound lanes and on Aug. 25 for northbound lanes.

All four northbound lanes on the bridge will be reopened by 5 a.m. Aug. 25.

Crews will begin restoring the northbound (lower) deck of the Brent Spence Bridge back to a four-lane travel configuration this week, but specific timing has yet to be determined. Officials say they’ll need to reduce northbound travel to just one lane at some point in the week.

  • Third Street ramp in Cincinnati to I-71/75 south

In Kentucky:

  • Fourth Street ramp in Covington to I-71/75 North
  • I-71/75 south to Erlanger / KY 236 Exits 184, 184A and 184B

The 60-day project started June 23. Officials in charge of the project said additional maintenance work will continue on the bridge through November with periodic lane closures taking place at night.
