Bridge replacement to begin for Madison County

Maple Grove Road/KY 1984 at milepoint 2.035 over Tates Creek

The Bridging Kentucky Program

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 15, 2021) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of a bridge project scheduled to begin. The bridge located on Maple Grove Road/KY 1984 in Madison County was determined unsafe for the traveling public. Inspectors from District 7 examined the bridge during a scheduled routine review. The bridge was closed April 23, 2020 due to the condition of the superstructure. The weight limit was three tons at that time.

The project was awarded to Todd Johnson Contracting Inc. for the amount of $406,422.46. The anticipated completion date is Tuesday, August 31, 2021. The work is part of the Bridging Kentucky Program. 

Bridging Kentucky is a commitment to improving the safety, and soundness of the Commonwealth’s bridges by rehabilitating, repairing, or replacing critical bridges throughout the state. The program is designed to open closed structures, improve bridge lifespans, ensure appropriate weight capacities are met, and improve access, and mobility for all Kentuckians.
