The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is looking to replace a bridge across Sinking Fork Creek that saw extensive repairs about two years ago.

KyTC Spokesman Keith Todd said they are looking for public input on the project, which is in the design and environmental phase. The bridge is along Ky. 1585, about 0.3 miles north of Ky. 272, and is between Ky. 272 and Smith Lane in the Caledonia area.

“The maintenance of traffic plan consists of closing Ky. 1585 during construction with a detour available along U.S. 68/ Ky. 80, Ky. 117, and Ky. 272,” said Todd. “Upon completion of construction Ky. 1585 will be reopened to the traveling public.”

Todd said that while they hope to keep the existing bridge open while the new one is built, they’ll probably have to close it and detour traffic. So far, there isn’t much of a timeline for how long the project will take, but Todd said it should be ready to bid by late summer or early fall.
