Great research. We are submitting a proposal to repair and reopen. May i use some of what you have found?

Gratz Bridge (Kentucky)
Posted May 23, 2018, by Brian Lockett (catbus420 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I saw a "murder show" on ID-channel that involved the Gratz Bridge. It was in a series about trying miscarriages of justice.

It was about a lady in Shelbyville who spent a few years in jail after being convicted of killing her boyfriend, which was terribly stupid of the courts. She was little, they said under 100-lbs and only had one leg due to an old car accident. I don't know how a jury could have possibly thought that the little lady would be able to kill the guy, let alone tying him to concrete blocks and throwing him off of the Gratz bridge. Luckily, a guy in Louisville wound up confessing out of the blue and she was freed.

The show had the bridge in a few scenes but they were the wrong bridge. It wasn't some generic stock footage of a bridge. It may very well have been the "Gratz bridge" but the murder happened around 1998, so he would have gotten tossed off of the old cool bridge.

This is turning out to be a lot of fun. I've still not found anything referencing a bridge prior to the 1889 date on the plaque, but I have found out a lot of "big picture" info that would support a bridge being built there out of necessity at the end of the war. Bowling Green was actually a major transportation "hub" at the time, with the Railroad (north-south) crossing paths with the Barren-Green river system (east-west). The retreating Confederates destroyed the railroad bridge, and those retreating from the town of Woodbury dumped boulders and scrap iron into the lock chamber at the dam. The lock and dam at Woodbury locked up the confluence of both the Green and Barren rivers, and totally stopped all steamboat and packet travel above that point. The Union Army had the railroad bridge repaired before the end of the war, but the damage to the locks was not, and the system was allowed to deteriorate for the rest of the war. When the war ended, no action was taken on the river until 1868, when the government leased navigation to a private company, and it was around 1870/71 before they got the river open again. Building a bridge would have been a perfect solution to getting producers of goods north of the river access to the railroad. In fact, the path of the original Richardsville Road made a short loop around to where the small scale "portage railroad" ended near the docks. It's very possible the bridge was built in a "get 'er done" fashion in the late 1860's, with strengthening and improvements done at the later dates.

We were thinking late 1860s. Thanks for the research.

Posted May 15, 2018, by Michael Page (jellicle2210 [at] windstream [dot] net)

If it's of any help...Bowling Green was the Confederate capital of Kentucky early in the civil war, and several good maps were drawn up of the area for military use. As of 1863/64, there was not a bridge there, nor was there even a road in that location. It would have to had been late 1860's at the very earliest.

Posted May 11, 2018, by Julie Bowers (jbowerz1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

The team visits this bridge for Warren County. We will be providing an estimate for the engineers working drawings and repairs to the county as as soon as possible.

Cant wait to delve more into the history of incredible trabsformation of this bridge.

Posted May 9, 2018, by Melissa Jurgensen

I have since spoken with the owner. The bridge was removed on Friday, April 27, 2018. After the severe damage it received in the flooding at the end of July 2017 he considered the bridge a safety hazard. He spent his own money trying to save the bridge but in the end, he felt that removal was the best thing to do. He did salvage some of the bridge but does not believe the timbers date back to 1864.

The bridge has been replaced at an unknown date after I last phptpgraphed it in August 2017

Posted May 5, 2018, by Damon McGaha

This bridge was built in February/March 1907 and finished just before midnight on 31-March-1907.

It was built by the Vincennes Bridge Company

Some history can be found here:

http://www.columbiamagazine.com/index.php?sid=72266

It was condemned and closed to traffic (and should have been several years before) on 20-August-2014.

Near that time, large rectangular concrete barriers were placed at each end to prevent vehicle access.

On 17-April-2015, it was lifted from its piers and set in the river, then drug from the river and hauled to where it now sits as a pedestrian bridge at the adjacent Tebb's Bend Battleground property.

I believe it's present location is only temporary, as it does not span anything; and, when money allows, I believe it will be relocated to span one of the several creek crossings within the battleground park.

Posted May 4, 2018, by Damon McGaha

Thank you for the info.

I just uploaded five new photos that show the side view of the completed bridge.

I could not do better that day, as there was a lot of traffic due to a festival on the same road and no way to get out of the road to get a better angle.

As to the 1907 bridge being replaced, my wife and I walked out on the old bridge in September 2014 and the whole thing shook with every step; no way would I have ventured onto it with a vehicle.

That being said, in the 1980s and 90s, I crossed it frequently with a loaded gooseneck cattle trailer; even then, had I have gotten out and took a closer look, I probably would have vetoed such a foolish move and went the long way around.

This will explain the differences. It is difficult to see clearly but the photo, I believe, shows this to be a Pratt. Also, I can not be sure but I do not believe the bridge in the Sat. view is the same the bridge in the photo

I am somewhat confused by this bridge being described as a Warren Through Truss, and it may very well be; however, this bridge has verticals.

My understanding about the various bridge designs is that a Warren has no vertical members.

Were this bridge not already described as a Warren, I would label it as a Pratt Through Truss, as it has all the design attributes of a Pratt.

Could someone please enlighten me on this; and, if it is indeed a Warren, please point out what makes it a Warren.

Thank you.

This is pretty sad that this bridge has been destroyed as it was the only bedstead in the direct Louisville, KY area. If anyone has any info on its history, please chime in.

Posted April 11, 2018, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

James... the issue is more complex than that. If the bridge can be proven to be one of the oldest bridges in Kentucky than this raises its state level of significance... giving it a better chance of funding. If the bridge can be proven to be one of the oldest king bowstrings in the country, this raises its national significance... giving it a better chance of funding. Here are the facts:

1. Unusual shoes and bottom chord details at the end unlike those ever seen before

2. Bottom chord eyebar/pin/splice matches ca 1871 details of Springfield Bridge in Arkansas. Does not use the knife design used in later bowstrings.

3. Archaic King Bridge Company plaque design on bowstring top chord, older than the usual oval shape used on bowstrings.

4. 1889 King plaque on overhead bracing. Purpose/origin unknown. Research needed.

5. On the overhead bracing (not original to the bowstring), Carnegie brand with an inset "H" at the last "e" is a logo used starting in the 1920s. Thus suggesting the existing bracing seen was installed in the 1920s. Research needed.

I cannot claim to know the exact history, but with research it would be nice to prove a theory that the bowstring truss was fabricated by King Bridge in the late 1860s to early 1870s, with "something" happening in 1889 and "something" happening in the 1920s.

Posted April 11, 2018, by Julie Bowers (jbowerz1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

It does matter for these old bridges to figure out the story and not believe engineers who have their own fiscal agendas now or historians who dont quite know and do your own homework. It's an old bridge, modified early, for stength and height, which allowed it to stay open. Hopefully we can get back to open so a few folks can actually drive across. That's what is important. 20 years is a big deal and we have done our research to further the discussion.

Posted April 10, 2018, by James McCray (jamesinslocomb [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I am going to throw my 2 cents in here....

Some of you think its an 1889 bridge and some of you think its an 1860's bridge.

I say its an old bridge.

There.

Issue settled.

The bridge will live on.

Not an 1889 bowstring. How do we fact check NRHP..

Details and research. The shoes are a fix according to David Simmons but this is an early King bowstring because of the patents and details and placque.

We're researching. Floating possibilities and discussuon, talking. The community is larger than you can imagine, a lot of it not on here because of the bashing when there is much fun to be had.

Weve got the contract to see if BACH and gang can get it open by repairing the problemd.

The original bridge consisted of three truss spans. The middle span was destroyed during a 1997 flood and was replaced by a temporary Bailey span. The new bridge opened in 2005.

Friend is correct. Relic bridge here used to be main US 60 bridge. South of it are remnants of bridge that carried inter-urban railway between Louisville and Shelbyville. This functioned to 1930s. Remember could see old inter-urban Rwy bridge in 1950s. Now, very little left

There are 3 proposed alignment options for the new I-69 bridge from Henderson to Evansville: West Alternative 1, Western Alternative 2 and Central Alternative 1. Central Alternative 1, which places the I-69 bridge east and away from the US 41 bridges is the preferred location and is likely to be the chosen alignment.

The short side is not acessable, due to the fact that it has no trespassing signs posted on it. If you want to see this, you have to walk it the long way. Be prepared for a 1 mile walk for this one.

I have an ancestor who in 1799 was supposedly buried on an island at the mouth of 12 Mile Creek and the Ohio River. I have heard that the island is no longer there, having been swept away during a flood. Do you have any information about this island and was there a cemetery located there? Thanks for any information you may have.

The restoration of the Beech Fork Covered Bridge was completed on December 25, 2017 by Arnold M. Graton & Associates. 80%+ of the original bridge was able to be reused. The abutments were covered with gunite at some point in time. In the restoration much of the stone was rotated so the gunite-covered face is hidden, making the bridge more picturesque. (Chipping off the gunite would have damaged the stone too much.) The only place the stones weren't rotated is directly under the bridge.

I really hope that this bridge was really built by Vikings as its name implies. It certainly looks old enough that it could be true.

Posted December 4, 2017, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

There are some conflicting statements in the forum on this bridge, and the information shown is misleading. Firstly, I field visited this bridge and ALL connections are bolted, and ALL members are rolled steel beams. In addition, a 1989 photo provides clear photographic evidence (with additional confirmation in the caption) that the bridge seen today is not historic, and is instead an all-new truss sitting on (in part) the earlier piers. The 1946 bridge had built-up beams with lattice and v-lacing, and the 1963 bridge had built-up beams with holes. http://www.kyphotoarchive.com/2017/03/06/i-75-clays-ferry-br...

To those who mourn this bridge, it is uncommon to have those guardrails without a truss bridge. But, there is a twin of it in Carter County. It is in Olive Hill, Kentucky. It is located on Cross Street. It has been maintained better, much better. I beleve it is a steel stringer from around the same time.

I think that I may have found another bowstring truss!!!! It is literally like right there. It is just a few yards beyond the unmaintained side of the bridge. It appears to be over the Rough River. It looks like it still has it's deck. Looks like you can walk on it. I saw this from the satellite view. I think it might be a twin of the listed bridge. It is not as covered by the vegetation. If you look at the satellite, you'll see what I mean. 😃

What? Were the old portals burned, blown down, or what? Also seeing pictures of the old covered bridge, it looks like it was a long single span(wonder how long).

The abandoned bridge in the foreground only carried a water main, was abandoned in the 1970's.

Posted September 30, 2017, by Walter Laughlin (laughlin [dot] robert [at] gmail [dot] com)

The original bridge at this location was a double-barrel covered bridge built by James Carrothers about 1832. It was burned during the Civil War. The second covered bridge was built in, I THINK, 1866 - I'll have to check the files. It was condemned and replaced in 1909. The second covered bridge was built of black walnut and the lumber was purchased by a local lumber yard and advertised for several years. The stonework dates to the original 1832 construction. No photographs of either covered bridge are known to exist.

I agree with Tony and Wayne as well. I was surprised of all the references to it and as a visitor, just accidentally saw it as we were leaving. We had spent a lot of time looking for it. Then trying to find information on it after I got home was difficult.

I was told by a local contractor, there were only two of this type ever built in the US and this one is the only one still standing. Is this true?

Magnificent piece of history.

Our company recently did some work on this bridge. The story that we were told was that KY DOT paid to have the bridge built back in the 70's. In turn IDOT was responsible for maintaining it.

Posted August 16, 2017, by Melissa Jurgensen

I have added several photos from my August 12 visit. Dover has gone from a bridge that no one was worried about to one that many are worried about all in a matter of hours. My photos do not really show the extent of the damage - it is best appreciated when the bridge is seen in person. (That being said, if anyone visits the bridge do not enter it as it is in serious danger of collapse.) It needs emergency stabilization measures to be taken immediately. We can't lose this bridge.

Posted August 13, 2017, by Melissa Jurgensen

The bridge was severely damaged in flash flooding on July 22, 2017 and is barely hanging on. The landowner gave me permission to photograph it up close on August 12, 2017. Pictures will be added.

Posted August 13, 2017, by Melissa Jurgensen

I believe the bridge is no longer in use as it appears the driveway has been routed around it and a new bridge built over the creek. The bridge decking is in very poor condition. I only took one quick picture of it from the car on August 12, 2017 (because I didn't know it's significance until a search here).

Posted August 8, 2017, by Melissa Jurgensen

The Dover Bridge was badly damaged in flash flooding on July 22, 2017. The steel supports underneath the bridge were washed out and the bridge was bowed due to the force of the water. The truss is approximately disengaged from the lower chords and the only thing supporting the bridge is a compromised floor. Unless emergency stabilization measures are taken soon it is not a question of "if" the bridge will collapse, it is "when".

I don't know if there is support for rail trails in Kentucky, but I do know that based on my experience in West Virginia there seems to be a lot of people there who support them. These trails have been a pretty good boon to West Virginia from what I understand.

If this road in Kentucky were to become a trail it would certainly be a local attraction. If people want to support it might become a nice asset for the area.

Posted May 3, 2017, by Tony Dillon (spansaver [at] hotmail [dot] com)

It was probably a joint effort Sarah. The bridge was owned by the state when it was replaced and was probably deeded to the county, town or a private entity. I looked at the HAER documentation that was executed as part of the mitigation before it was replaced, and the move had already been in the works.

Do you know how this bridge ended up in Auburn? Was it donated by someone or was it bought by the city?

Looks like the boat took the brunt of it!

Bridge took a shot from an escaped boat.

Is the bridge open or not?
