Louisville Wins another Round in Fight to Obtain Rights to the Big Four Bridge
Posted: 12-Jul-2004 12:16AM CDT

The Kentucky Court of Appeals has ruled that Louisville may condemn the Big Four Bridge and incorporate it into plans for a waterfront park. The railroad bridge was abandoned in 1969 after the merger of the New York Central and Pennsylvania Railroads and has sat unused since. The city would like to turn the bridge into a pedestrian walkway over the Ohio River. Despite losing yet another round in the legal battle for the bridge, a lawyer representing the current owners of the bridge plan to continue fighting.
