Motorists should watch for lane closures and one-lane traffic between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. nightly.
- Also in Ashland, contractors have scheduled required safety inspections of the Ohio River bridges downtown for Sept. 16-26. The work will require daily lane closures of 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the 13th Street bridge, which carries traffic across the river to Ohio, and 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the 12th Street bridge, which carries traffic from Ohio to Kentucky.
