KY 289 bridge to remain closed, likely to be replaced

The bridge on KY 289 will remain closed due to vehicle impact and could be replaced.

On March 1, engineers completed a thorough inspection of the bridge on KY 289, which has been closed due to vehicle impact.

“Load and structure analysis were made available to KYTC District 4 personnel after a thorough inspection process on the bridge,” said Chris Jesse with KYTC District 4. “Given the damage caused and typical usage conditions, reopening the structure to traffic is not possible and the road will remain closed long-term due to safety concerns.”
