ASHLAND, KY (WOWK) — In Ashland, Kentucky, the 12th and 13th Street bridges will be going through inspections, which could mean traffic delays for some drivers.

Beginning tomorrow, the inspections will require daily lane closures – between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Inclement weather could affect inspection schedules forcing crews to rescheduled for the next clear-weather day.
