Travel: KY 90 Through Truss Bridge over Lake Cumberland

2013-12-23 - KY 90 near Burnside, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener. It isn't England - the photo was taken in the rear view mirror of the KY 90 Bridge over Lake Cumberland, near Burnside, between Somerset and Monticello, KY. We liked the barn or covered bridge look, and especially the weathered steel appearance. The bridge, according to engineer Mark A. Foster, is a Warren Through Truss style, and includes two 750 foot spans as part of its approximately 1,700 ft total length. The weathered steel material saved some $1 million in construction costs, and, in years to come will greatly reduce maintenance expense as the bridge will never needed repainting. The upper part part provides wind bracing, foster said, with its "W" design. The bridge is approximately 6 years old. The state has built one other bridge almost identical to this one, in Western KY, according to Mr. Foster. Photo taken Saturday, December 21, 2013. - EW Clicking Readmore accesses "Daytrip" story
