- The deadline for Williamstown Bridge cleanup has passed. The U.S. Coast Guard bridge detachment gave the Alan Stone Co. Inc. six days to remove the bridge from the Ohio River after the final detonation but heavy rains and lack of heavy equipment have made the job more difficult than expected.
- With the closure of the Putnam Street Bridge, nearly 15,000 cars began traveling the Washington Street Bridge. The standard wait to get across the bridge during peak travel times, such as noon and 5 p.m., is about 40 minutes.
