Inspectors will be on-site between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. A single lane closure will be in place at the approach to the bridge in Ohio on both I-71 southbound and I-75 southbound.

A double lane closure will be in place on the southbound portion of the Spence Bridge from the 191.63 mile point to the 191.36 mile point.
