(Lebanon, Oh.) - The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is making some routine maintenance improvements during the emergency closure of the Brent Spence Bridge. The bridge closed Wednesday, following a crash and fire that damaged the structure.  ODOT crews are taking advantage of this time to complete other routine work.  

“Our managers have been reviewing that area to look for any maintenance improvements, some of which have already started, that can be completed while the bridge is closed,” said ODOT District 8 Highway Management Administrator Doug Gruver. “This allows us to get some needed work done without adding additional impacts to drivers, and keeps our workers safe.”

Crews are currently working to clean drains, make pavement repairs, sweep the area, inspect overhead structures, repair highway lighting, clear nearby vegetation, and remove litter. This is an example of ODOT continuing to work for the public and make the most of the current situation.

Motorists can get updates on all of ODOT’s work in the area by following the District 8 Twitter and Facebook pages.
