Kentucky bridge is free, but must be set back up
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - October 25, 2011 (WPVI) -- Kentucky transportation officials are offering a bridge to any taker who will preserve it.
The three-span steel truss bridge over the Kentucky River in the state's southeastern corner would be free and is available after a new bridge is completed next year to carry Ky. 80.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet would even pay for taking down the 82-year-old, 456-foot bridge and hauling it to the new owner's location.
The catch is that whoever takes it has to set it back up in its original form and maintain it.
The department says the bridge would be a good entrance to a walking trail or could go to a private owner who just happened to need a good bridge that's too narrow for state specifications.
