PADUCAH – Plans are firming up for the explosive demolition of two main spans on the old U.S. 68/KY 80 Lake Barkley Bridge at Canton tentatively set for Wednesday, April 11. The demolition team has started cutting steel at key locations on the two main truss spans of the old bridge to weaken the 86-year-old structure.

Highway traffic on the new US 68/KY 80 Lake Barkley Bridge will be blocked for up to two hours to accommodate the use of explosives on the old bridge with an extended halt to commercial boat traffic on Lake Barkley.
