Work to Expand Bridge in Bowling Green

Dec 22, 2011

Motorists traveling on Interstate 65 and Scottsville Road might have noticed large steel pylons sticking out of the ground near the existing overpass.The steel is part of the foundation of an expanded bridge that will ultimately be a single-point urban interchange. "Right now, they are working on the north side of the bridge," said Keirsten Jaggers, spokeswoman at the Department of Highways in Bowling Green. "They will put all the big steel piers in the ground ... then they will go ahead and build up the ramps that will be closer to the interstate than they are. There is a lot of earthwork for those ramps needed."
