No Takers for Carter County Bridge Giveaway; Bridge Collapses During Removal
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.
