Goddard Bridge Work Starts This Week
Posted: 10-Mar-2005 5:32AM CST

Work will begin Thursday to repair the Goddard Covered Bridge in Fleming County. Originally, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet had planned to allow a contractor to remove the bridge and repair it offsite; however, local residents protested and the state agreed to require that all restoration work be performed onsite.

The bridge is believed to have been constructed in the 1820s, and was last restored in 1968.

Goddard Bridge Renovations Months Away
Posted: 23-Jun-2004 7:58AM CDT

The Maysville Ledger Independent reports that the Goddard Covered Bridge in Fleming County is under contract to be renovated; however, the renovations will not begin until public meetings can be held to discuss the project. These meetings are not likely to be held for another two months.

The bridge has been the focus of attention since plans to remove the bridge for renovation were met with anger from local residents at a public meeting in 2003. The transportation cabinet has since asked the project contractor to revise their plans so the bridge can be repaired onsite. Outrage over the plans to remove the bridge led to the enactment of new legislation governing how the state’s covered bridges are to be managed.

Historically, the area around the bridge has been home to the Fleming County Covered Bridge Festival; however, this year the festival has been forced to move because an agreement to use the land near the bridge could not be secured.

Georgetown By-pass Maybe Completed by 2010
Posted: 29-Feb-2004 9:40AM CST
Topics: [KY 32] [Scott County] [US 25] [US 460]

In an article that no longer appears to be online, the Georgetown News-Graphic reports that the final leg of the Georgetown Bypass would be completed in 2010 under the proposed six-year highway plan. Construction on the bypass originally began in 1994 when the section eastern half of the bypass from US 25 south to US 25 north was completed. In 1997, the southwestern stretch of the bypass between US 460 west and US 25 south was constructed.

Under the proposed six year highway plan, right of way purchases for the stretch of the bypass between US 460 west and US 25 north would begin in 2007. Actual construction of the road would begin in 2010.
