COVINGTON, Ky. — After last week's reopening of the top four lanes of the Brent Spence Bridge, officials announced all four northbound lanes are now open.

In addition, the I-71/75 northbound ramp from Fourth Street in Covington is also now open.

Officials said temporary closures will happen Sunday night around 10 p.m. for the installation of overhead signage and pavement tattoos. Traffic will be reduced to one lane northbound across the bridge and the on-ramp to I-71/75 NB from Fourth Street in Covington.

The southbound lanes were opened last week. The bridge has been under repair since a two-semi crash ignited a fire damaging it in Nov. 2020.
