Approach widened, but gentle curves remain at Spouts Springs

2007-08-17 - Spout Springs Road, District 6, Adair County, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
The ENTRANCE TO SPOUTS SPRINGS ROAD IS BEING WIDENED , but the charming, gentle curves of Spout Springs Road retains all the country character of the old road. The bridge is in and passable, though not officially open. This is the third bridge built since January 2007 by the Adair County Road Department and Supervisor Jobe Darnell and the crew seem to have gotten the hang of it. The old bridge fell in three weeks and one day ago. Confirmation that the county would get $75,637.00 from Governor Fletcher's Emergency Roads fund came on August 1, 2007, from Kentucky Rural High Commissioner Ginger Wells, and Judge Melton was authorized to sign all necessary documents to accept the grant by the Adair County Fiscal Court on August 14, 2007. The bridge is now two lane and is raised enough that flashflooding should not be a problem. "Accessibility for residents, tourists and visitors to Spout Springs, and public safety were the main factors determining the design of the bridge and approach," Judge Melton said, "But we did work to preserve the rural character of the road, too. With tourism being the number three industry in the county, we want to do all we can to enhance the scenic beauty that we can."
