The weather has been fantastic the last few days for a picnic, graduations and yes—even bridge building.
That has allowed workers with Hall Contracting to make up any lost ground while working around the clock to repair the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge as quickly as possible.
Kentucky Highway Department spokesman Keith Todd says no time is being wasted.
Todd says officials with Hall Contracting have said they will finish the bridge by May 27th and the state has no reason at this point to believe they won’t.
Once the 322-foot span is secured and the bridge is finished, Todd says large inspection crew will arrive to go over the structure in detail to be sure it’s safe before any traffic is allowed to cross. The only thing that could slow the crew down at this point is rain.
