This has been Kentucky’s busiest year of bridge building in history, which is primarily a result of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Bridging Kentucky Program. The six-year program was launched in mid-2018 to restore more than 1,000 deteriorating bridges throughout the state.
Over 100 bridge projects have been completed so far in 2019. As of the end of November, the program has completed construction of 115 bridges since its inception.
“The state is working hard to reopen closed bridges, eliminate weight restrictions that limit travel and restore critical crossings throughout the state,” said Royce Meredith, KYTC’s program manager for Bridging Kentucky.
