[I-75]
Site Feature: I-75 Clay's Ferry Bridge Photos
Posted: 16-Jul-2003 9:29AM CDT

When the first part of this bridge opened in 1946 it was the 7th tallest bridge in the United States. Today it is still an engineering wonder; two parallel bridges were joined together by a third bridge to form one continuous roadway. On July 5, 2003, I took these pictures of the I-75's crossing of the Kentucky River: the Clay's Ferry Bridge.

South end of the bridge viewed from KY 2328.

KentuckyRoads.com Has Been Redesigned
Posted: 12-Aug-2002 8:59PM CDT
Topics: [Site Features]

I have recently completed a redesign of the KentuckyRoads.com website. My intention was to provide easier access to the information within site. Among the new features is a list of all topic used to categorize items on the site. I will also begin categorizing items by county where applicable.

Many of the topic pages are very slim in content; however, I will work to develop them as time permits.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions email me. My email address is <jeff@kentuckyroads.com>.

On July 23, 2002, my internet hosting provider suffered a series of hard drive crashes. All of my websites, including KentuckyRoads.com, and any backups were lost. I believe I have now managed to restore all of the news items and site features from my local backups of the site.

I've updated the William H. Natcher Bridge page with pictures that I took on June 25 and February 16. The bridge and the Kentucky approach appear to be essentially complete. There was some work underway to install lighting along the bridge. The Indiana approach is still under construction.

Site Updates
Posted: 31-Jul-2002 1:16AM CDT
Topics: [Site Features]

All of the links in the news items have been checked. Many of the links to older newspaper articles are now broken; however, I have managed to find some of the articles archived at archive.org [Outside Link] and have linked to the archive where appropriate. In the past I have asked a couple of newspapers that regularly remove their articles if I could archive their stories online; however, both newspapers refused. I will continue to try to use as much information from those sources without infringing their copyrights.

Also, the KYTC Division of Planning [Outside Link] has recently redesigned their website (twice actually), and I have updated all of the links to that website.
