LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The state plans to move forward with an alternate plan that re-uses some elements of the existing Weisenberger Mill Bridge in an ongoing effort to re-open the road over Elkhorn Creek in Scott and Woodford counties.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the proposed solution fits within the context of the environment and provides a structure that can be safely utilized by the public and emergency vehicles.
