Crews are repairing an expansion joint that was "exhibiting vertical movement" during an engineering inspection.

The lanes are closed now and will remain closed until about 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, KYTC said.

Officials added: "The structural integrity of the bridge is not compromised. The expansion joint repairs are needed to prevent damage to vehicles traveling across the bridge."

We will update this story when the lanes reopen. For now, expect delays.
