Comments about: Walnut Grove Bridge project 16th of CJE Ann Melton Era

Charles Marshburn thinks his bridge is pre-Victorian

Comments re article 56023 Walnut Grove Bridge project 16th of CJE Ann Melton Era

Charles Marshburn writes:
I believe my bridge was built during the Victorian Era! T'would be tumbling down! Has been deemed unsafe by those in the know. - Charles Marshburn
That's a shame. Over in the mountains, it seems there's a bridge for every house, for every driveway. If the county had the revenue to do that, it would be nice. - CM

Elizabethtown, KY (November 20, 2012) - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews have installed signals on the KY 1136 (New Glendale Road) bridge over the Western Kentucky Parkway, allowing for alternating one way traffic.
