Posted: 18-Jul-2003 10:14AM CDT

The transportation cabinet will be constructing a new bridge on KY 1947 in Carter County, but first the state needed to find something to do with the existing 1922 era bridge. The KYTC offered to give the bridge to a party that could reassemble it elsewhere; however, there were no takers. When contractors went to remove the bridge, the bridge collapsed. There were no injuries.

KYTC Seeks Home for Historic Bridge
Posted: 31-Aug-2001 7:41PM CDT

According to this Aug. 31, 2001 article [Outside Link] in the Ashland Daily-Independent, the KYTC is looking for a new home for a historic bridge. The bridge, built in 1922, currently carries KY 1947 over Barrett's Creek near Grayson. It is scheduled to be replaced; however, the KYTC is hoping to give the bridge to a local government or group so that that will not have to be destroyed.
