FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Highways says a bridge in northeastern Kentucky that was closed for a painting project has reopened.

The Independent (https://bit.ly/1SlRi8y ) reports the Carl D. Perkins Memorial Bridge reopened to traffic Wednesday after closing in April so contractors could paint the span’s 600,000-square-foot steel superstructure. The structure spans the Ohio River and connects Greenup County, Kentucky, with Portsmouth, Ohio.

The Kentucky Department of Highways says the $7 million project is expected to help preserve the structure for about 35 years.
