FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – Work is underway to improve the KY 36 bridge over Brushy Fork at Carlisle in Nicholas County as part of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Bridging Kentucky initiative
Over the next 30 days, contractors will repair the bridge’s concrete piers and support beams, apply waterproofing, replace the concrete driving surface, and make other improvements.
The bridge – located on KY 36 at mile marker 3 just west of the KY 13 intersection – will be one lane during construction, with all traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals. Motorists should take it slow across the structure, and be mindful of barricades and workers at all times.
The work is being done under a $346,268.27 low-bid Transportation Cabinet contract awarded to M&M Services Co., Inc., under the Bridging Kentucky Program.
The program is a commitment to improve safety and soundness of the Commonwealth’s bridges by rehabilitating, repairing, or replacing more than 1,000 critical structures in all 120 Kentucky counties over the next six years.
The program will open previously closed structures, improve bridge lifespans and ensure appropriate weight capacities are met, and improve access and mobility for all Kentuckians. For more about Bridging Kentucky please visit BridgingKentucky.com.
Road work schedules are subject to change depending on weather conditions. Motorists are asked to heed all warning signs, slow down in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
