I55 through MO & KY?

We are heading out from Columbia, MO enroute to Hopkinsville KY and planning on taking route 55 through Cape Girardeau and Paducah. Any issues with getting a 12'8" tall fifth wheel under underpasses or anything? It looks like a more scenic route than I24 or I69.

I just ran it in reverse of you six weeks ago and it is a good way to go. The bridge across the Ohio River south of Cairo is one of the older, two lane metal truss bridges and it looks tight but is plenty wide enough. I just take my time crossing it (3 times so far) and regularly pass semis going the other way. Slow down for the tight curve on the east side of the bridge. In StL I go I-64 and I-270 to get on I-55
