Seasonal maintenance on a highly traveled interstate bridge could slow traffic Tuesday. State Transportation Department Spokesman Ryan Watts says they’ll repair pot holes on two lanes of Interstate-75 on the Clay Ferry bridge. “Well construction crews will close down two southbound lanes at the Clays Ferry bridge…at the Fayette Madison county line..and we’re closing the bridge for bridge deck repairs,” said Watts.
Watts says there are no concerns about the integrity of the highly travelled bridge. One lane southbound will remain open Tuesday morning, from six o-clock until 11:30. The starting time and duration of work depends on weather conditions and could be adjusted on the southbound portion of the bridge.
