The company tasked to repair the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge on the Trigg-Marshall County line has begun engineering work.
A news release from the Highway Department says Hall Construction of Kentucky Vice President Tom Roberts says his engineers are working out final details to allow steel to be fabricated to replace the missing span knocked out by the Delta Mariner on the evening of January 26th.
Hall Contracting was the low bidder on the project and promised to have it completed by Memorial Day weekend.
Roberts says work hasn’t progressed to the point where steel can be poured yet, but progress is being made.
Stiff penalties and fines will be assessed to Hall by the state, should they fail to meet the deadline.
