Eggners Ferry Bridge, With the aid of daylight, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) engineers are getting a better look at damage to the US 68/KY 80 Eggner’s Ferry Bridge over Kentucky Lake at Aurora, Ky.
A main span of the bridge was struck by a large cargo vessel about 8:00 p.m., CST, Thursday night. Fortunately, there were no fatalities.
KYTC spokesperson Keith Todd tells Local 6 the boat struck Span “E” of the bridge. This span is 322 ft. long.
KYTC will be working with the Coast Guard and Army Corps of Engineers to determine if river traffic can be established under the main channel span. KYTC Engineers should know later today if the structure is stable enough to allow river traffic to resume.
