The project is part of the state’s “Bridging Kentucky” program, which will rehabilitate, repair, or replace more than 1,000 critical bridges across the state over the next six years.

There are five bridges in Fayette County that are being replaced and one that is marked for rehabilitation, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, which is overseeing the program.
