The annual Bridge Day event gives locals the once-a-year chance to walk the Glover Cary “Blue” Bridge downtown.  The event also features the Bridge Run 5K and 10K.  This year, the Bridge Run has an out-and-back route, which sends runners across the bridge twice!

Due to these activities, the Blue Bridge will close at 7am on Saturday, September 15th.  The run is expected to wrap up at approximately 9am, with the bridge set to open to pedestrians at that time.  It will remain open until Noon.  Shortly after that, the bridge will close to all traffic due to the Owensboro Air Show.

During the Owensboro Air Show and scheduled practice sessions, the Blue Bridge will be closed to traffic at the following times:

Thursday, September 13 – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Friday, September 14 – 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Saturday, September 15 – 7:00 am – 4:30 pm

Sunday, September 16 – 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
