From The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet:

"The Roebling Bridge will be closed beginning approximately at 4 pm until so that the District 6 Bridge Crew can take check the north tower.  This afternoon a piece of sandstone fell from the ledge.  At this time it appears to be superficial, but crews will take a closer look.  The bridge will reopen once inspection is complete and deemed clear."

The Roebling Suspension bridge is out of commission for Thursday rush hour traffic.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a chunk of sandstone fell off the one of the bridge's towers.

The bridge will be closed for clean-up from 2:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
