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.
The current bridge was determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places by the Kentucky State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). It’s a 5-panel truss, 72′ long structure with a 12′ wide concrete deck. The truss span is approximately 40′ long, according to the state.
The current bridge dates to 1935.
