Nortonville Bridge reopens after being closed for a year and a half

Local News

HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – A Hopkins County bridge closed for a year and a half reopens to traffic.

Kentucky Transportation officials say vehicles can now use the new Salem Bridge just off of Highway 41 in Nortonville.

A cabinet spokesperson says some guardrails still have to be installed.

The bridge was closed in December of 2017 due to safety concerns arising from installation of new train tracks under the bridge and a water main break.

Residents living west of the bridge had to use detours while the bridge was closed off.
