Here's a travel alert for you if you live in Owensboro or are traveling through it.  The West 5th Street Road Overpass is going to close at 6pm tonight for necessary repairs.

The closure of West 5th Street Road at the Overpass where it crosses the Bypass (Wendell Ford Expressway) will allow repairs to steel beams that were damaged by an oversized load that hit the bridge a few months back.

Not only will West 5th Street Road be closed between Worthington Road and Jack C. Fisher Park, but there will also be lane restrictions for a section of the US 60 Bypass/Wendell Ford Expressway at milepoint 10.982 (which is between the US 60/Audubon Parkway Interchange and the US 60/KY 81 Interchange).  Eastbound and westbound traffic will be restricted to one lane where it runs underneath the overpass.

Estimated completion date of the project is May 31st.
