LBL Bridge Designs Unveiled

Cadiz, KY – Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear today unveiled the design for two long-planned bridges in Land Between the Lakes. The new Kentucky and Barkley Lakes bridges will cost an estimated 178 million-dollars. The new four lane bridges will also include a sidewalk and bike path. Officials are set to begin work in 2011. These bridges replace the current structures which are nearly eighty years old. The entire US 68 corridor reconstruction, including the bridges project, is expected to be complete by late 2017.
