William H. Natcher Parkway - Glen Lily Road Overpass
Description

Glen Lily Road's (KY 2665) overpass over the William H. Natcher Parkway is only a couple of miles from my house. It has impressed me ever since I was a child. When I was younger I was told that it had received an award for being the "Most Beautiful Bridge." When I was older, I found a plaque at the base of the bridge indicating that indeed in 1973 the bridge was named the "Most Beautiful Bridge" by the American Institute of Steel Construction in the Highway Grade Separation category. The plaque can be viewed in this image.

The pictures below were taken on June 17, 2001.
