BRIDGE DROP
Additional movement detected at old western Kentucky bridge; cabinet seeks demolition

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, May 14, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
LEDBETTER, Ky.


Kentucky transportation officials say further movement has been detected in approach spans at an old western Kentucky bridge over the Tennessee River.

The bridge is no longer used for traffic and was replaced last year. But a couple of weeks ago, officials discovered that two sections had dropped about 2 feet. River traffic was stopped for several hours, and the Coast Guard isn't allowing mariners to stop near the bridge.

The Transportation Cabinet said Tuesday that the approach spans showed 2.25 inches of vertical and horizontal movement in the past 48 hours.

The cabinet says the public should avoid the area and also says it will place solar-powered navigation lights in case power is lost by an additional drop.

The cabinet is also working to expedite the bridge's demolition.
