I've read an article that the bridge piers had been sinking in the river or something like that. Thats what mainly caused the railroad bridge upstream to get washed out. So a new I-64 bridge across a river of this size should out to be a signature bridge. Doubt that will happen.

This bridge is actually in Posey County. It is about a mile or so south of the Gibson-Posey county line.
