Bridge to Re-Open Today

KYTC

The U.S. 68/KY U.S. 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge repairs have been completed and state officials have sent word the span is to be reopened today.

9:00 UPDATE

As Kentucky Transportation officials and contractors finalize work to re-open the Eggners Ferry Bridge today, the span will be open to pedestrian and bike traffic beginning this morning at nine.  KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says anyone visiting the bridge should park off of the roadway and will still need to be careful as crews continue clean-up and finishing work.  There is an event scheduled for noon in the middle of the new span, and visitors will need to be off the bridge by 1 p.m.  Officials are hoping to have the crossing open to vehicle traffic at that time.  Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear says he’s pleased repairs will be completed ahead of the May 27th deadline and by a Kentucky company.

Bridge Span Installed Today

Lyon County Judge Executive's Office

Massive Cranes are hoisting the replacement span for a portion US 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge into position. Kentucky Transportation cabinet spokesperson Keith Todd says the 300 foot span is currently suspended six feet above the road bed and being lowered into place.  Once the span is in position, a crew will install reinforcing steel and concrete forms to allow workers to pour a new concrete deck on the structure sometime over the next 12 days. The bridge has been closed since January 26th when a cargo ship struck and collapsed the 300 foot section.
