BURGIN, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials say the reopening of the Kennedy Mill Bridge over Herrington Lake in central Kentucky has been delayed until April 8.

The bridge had been set to reopen on April 1, but The Advocate-Messenger (bit.ly/1RNlta4) reports repair work is continuing.

Kentucky transportation officials closed the 804-foot span that connects Mercer and Garrard counties on Sept. 3 due to the deterioration of steel supports. Repair work on the 92-year-old bridge began on Feb. 22. It is the only major crossing that spans the waterway for miles.

According to data from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, daily traffic across the bridge averages about 1,438 vehicles.
