Bridging Kentucky is renewing hundreds of bridges throughout the Commonwealth – working to rehabilitate, repair or replace bridges in every region statewide. Over time, smaller county bridges have deteriorated and become unfit for heavy vehicle crossings. Bridging Kentucky will reopen closed bridges, remove weight restrictions that prevent use by school buses, emergency vehicles and businesses, and improve access and mobility for all Kentuckians.
