Getting worse! I think it will be in the water before long. Kinda got the creeps walking on it

Bluegrass Creek Bridge
Posted November 16, 2009, by J.P.

This pony truss that you can see from 164 is in serious trouble. its has been abandoned by the county and looks like it could soon be in the creek. on the west end the abundment has broken letting the left side actually to fall off. Alot of the supports on the left side underneath has failed due to the added strain. I felt horrible for this bridge.
