The contractor in charge of repairing the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge is still working to have it re-opened before the Memorial Day weekend.
Kentucky Highway Department spokesman Keith Todd says crews got as much work as possible done prior to the Monday afternoon arrival of the replacement span at the bridge site.
Todd says Hall Contracting has given no indication they believe the job will extend past their deadline and could even bring in special concrete to cure faster, if need be.
Traffic has not crossed Kentucky Lake in Aurora since January 26th, when the Delta Mariner Cargo Vessel knocked out a 322-foot span of the bridge. Click here to see photos of the bridge span replacement from the air.
