Site Features: New Natcher Bridge Photographs

Pictures: Feb. 16, 2002

These pictures were taken on February 16, 2002. These show the bridge from the Indiana side of the bridge. At this point the entire span of the bridge was in place. The grading for the Indiana approach appeared complete; however, no pavement had been laid yet.

Pictures: June 27, 2002

These pictures were taken on June 27, 2002. I was able to visit both the Indiana and Kentucky side of the bridge to take these pictures. According to recent articles the bridge is now essentially complete. One can drive the Kentucky approach to the bridge all the way from US 60 to the bridge itself. I was tempted to drive across the bridge, but no trespassing signs kept me away. The Indiana approach to the bridge is still under construction. The contractors appear to be working an extended schedule to hurry completion: there was still work going on when I was there around 7:00pm on a Thursday.
