Work Continues on Eggners Ferry Bridge

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet technicians have placed laser markers on the U.S. 68/Ky. 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge that will allow the Kentucky Transportation Research Center to detect movement down to a fraction of an inch. The focus of the ongoing study is the stability of three piers that may have been damaged when the cargo ship Delta Mariner struck the bridge, knocking a 322-foot span into Kentucky Lake on the night of Jan 26.
