AURORA, Ky. (AP) - Traffic on the Eggners Ferry Bridge in western Kentucky will be restricted to one lane on Thursday and Saturday.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the U.S. 68-Kentucky 80 bridge will be restricted beginning at about 7 a.m. CST each day to allow concrete to be poured for pier construction on the new bridge. Trucks will park on one lane of the old bridge to deliver concrete for the new structure.

Flaggers will control alternating traffic flow during daylight hours on Thursday and Saturday. The cabinet urges caution in areas where equipment, flaggers and construction workers are close to traffic.

The restriction is expected to last for about six to eight hours each day.

The cabinet says work on Friday will generate heavy truck traffic in the work zone as well.
