GOLDEN POND, Ky. (AP) — A new bridge has been completed at Land Between The Lakes and maintenance is also finished on two other roads there.
The national recreation area says the new bridge over Smith Creek on Newby Cemetery Road, or Forest Service Road 130, provides access to fishing, hunting, cemetery visitation, hiking, camping and wildlife viewing. An emergency relief fund of the Federal Highways Administration paid for design and construction costs.
The bridge is 64 feet long and 16 feet wide.
The Highways Administration also replaced large culverts on Forest Service Road 108 to Demumbers Bay and Forest Service Road 134 to Energy Lake.
Land Between The Lakes manages more than 170,000 acres in western Kentucky and Tennessee and has more than 1.4 million visitors annually.
