SAO PAULO, July 27 (Reuters) - A Brazilian judge on Monday approved a bankruptcy restructuring plan for Odebrecht, the battered construction conglomerate that was a key fixture of the sprawling corruption probe known as "Operation Car Wash."

The judge, in a decision seen by Reuters, approved the plan and rejected objections from creditors, including state bank BNDES, Itaú Unibanco ITUB4.SA, Banco Bradesco BBDC4.SA, Santander Brasil SANB3.SA and Banco do Brasil BBAS3.SA.

Creditors in April had approved the restructuring plan for most of the subsidiaries that make up Odebrecht.
