Needed repairs to a bridge on Interstate 71 have closed one southbound lane until further notice.

The right lane on the southbound side of bridge over the Kentucky River in Carroll County has been closed until repairs are made to bridge joints, a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet release said.

Cabinet spokeswoman Nancy Wood said the lane on the bridge, which is located at mile marker 44, could be closed for weeks depending on the weather and the availability of work crews to make the repair.
