Bridge razing coming along

The Lake News

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has removed about half of the concrete decking on the three main spans of the old Ledbetter Bridge.

The contractor saw cut the concrete and over the past week has been using a track hoe to break off 3-foot sections of the decking, then using a loader to haul the concrete chunks back down the bridge to the Livingston County side of the Tennessee River for disposal.

The contractor plans to continue working from west to east along the bridge until the concrete decking is removed from the main spans.

The contractor submitted plans for the demolition to the U.S. Coast Guard for approval several weeks ago. The Coast Guard has indicated it would take about 30 days to review the plan. They have also provided the plan to other agencies and river industry organizations.

Once the plan is approved, the contractor will be able to provide a timetable for the ongoing demolition work through the summer.
