Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Mike Hancock says results of the emergency inspection were encouraging, and meant they were getting closer to repairing the damaged span. Governor Steve Beshear said during a press conference this week the KYTC is moving toward the use of a ferry service during the several months it will take to install a replacement span.
