RJCC - Kentucky River Bridge
Posted April 24, 2016, by David Morse (Ndavmorse [at] aol [dot] com)

The bridge was built by the Louisville & Nashville RR. The closed road bridge next to it was a joint road/rail bridge. The L&N built the current bridge to carry heavier trains and gave the old bridge to the state at which time it became road only.

R.J. Corman Central Kentucky Lines uses the bridge but the bridge belongs to CSX Transportation. Corman leases the line from them
