Yes. Announced this week. Pavement rehab from the state line northbound (downhill) to KY 805.

The Wikipedia article on the Ironton-Russel Bridge seems to blend info from the Oakley C. Collins Memorial Bridge into it.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ironton%E2%80%93Russell_Bridge
Yet they're clearly two separate bridges.

One is the replacement for the other. You're welcome to help rewrite the article(s) to clarify the situation.

No one I know of refers to the bridge as the Oakley C. Collins Memorial Bridge. Everyone calls it the Ironton-Russell Bridge. Or on this side of the river, sometimes just the Ironton Bridge.

seicer:
Newscasts sometimes refer to the Robert C. Byrd Bridge in Huntington as its original name: the 6th Street Bridge. Practically no one uses honorary or name-based designations.
