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.
