SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – A commercial truck traveling on I-75 struck a bridge in Scott County, which closed Frogtown Road/KY 608, and reduced I-75 Northbound at the 141 mile marker to the two right lanes on Friday afternoon, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

The damaged bridge was inspected and evaluated by state engineers.  One lane of traffic for the overpass will be maintained until the bridge can be repaired, according to the state.  A temporary stop light for the accessible lane on the overpass was put in to help motorists.  All lanes of northbound I-75 were reopened by early evening, according to the state.
