 The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has recently awarded a contract to replace a bridge in Knox County.

“Bridges are an indispensable part of our highway system and represent a considerable investment,” Kentucky Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said. “Replacing bridges that have outlived their usefulness is essential to highway safety and efficiency.”

The project in Knox County is for a new bridge and approaches over Little Richland Creek on (KY 2418) Blue Gable Straight. The site is six-tenths of a mile southeast of U.S. 25E. Elmo Greer & Sons LLC was awarded the contract for $499,985. The project is to be completed by July 31.
