Local News

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT) – The effort to relight the blue bridge in Owensboro clears another hurdle, but at a higher than expected cost.

City officials chose a bid from a Madisonville area contractor to relight it at a cost of $2.1 million.

It was the lowest of three bids chosen but was higher than what they originally aimed for.

City officials say they’ll work with the contractor on changes to lower costs.

Those changes must be approved by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
