CARLISLE, Ky. (AP) — Work has begun in northeastern Kentucky on a $3 million bridge replacement project.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says land clearing and utility relocations are underway at the location near the Myers community in Nicholas County.
Contractors are building a new bridge adjacent to the old steel truss crossing Scrubgrass Creek and TTI Railroad about five miles east of Carlisle on Kentucky 32.
Construction is scheduled to take place this spring through late summer. Demolition of the old bridge is expected in the fall.
Kentucky 32 will remain open during construction, but contractors will temporarily widen the highway near the existing bridge to divert traffic away from work zones. The cabinet says motorists should watch for flaggers and obey warning signs.
