KYTC Logo NewHENDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (11/3/17) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced it has awarded a contract for repairs to the U.S. 60 Green River bridge in Spottsville.

The $62,600 contract was awarded to Intech Contracting, LLC of Lexington. The contract requires repairs on the Spottsville Bridge to be completed by Dec. 12. KYTC engineers anticipate the contractor will need a week or more to fabricate materials required for repairs to one of the east approach spans on the structure.

KYTC District 2 Spokesman Keith Todd noted that once materials are fabricated, the contractor is required to provide the KYTC a seven-day advance notice before the bridge can be closed to allow the repairs. The contract allows Intech Contracting to close the structure for two weekends to facilitate the work. There has been no start date set for the work.

The U.S. 60 Green River “Spottsville” bridge has been restricted to one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by a automated signal and an 18-ton maximum load limit since Oct. 5, when inspectors found issues with some steel sections on one of the east approach spans. The bridge was initially restricted to an 8-ton load limit. However, by restricting traffic to one lane with an automated signal, engineers were able to raise the load restriction to 18 tons.

KYTC, Kentucky State Police, KSP Division of Vehicle Enforcement, and the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office have provided escorts for caravans to allow farmers to move large equipment along the Audubon Parkway while the temporary lane and 18-ton load restriction is in place on the Spottsville Bridge. Those caravans will continue until the repair work is completed, Todd said.

Todd emphasized the Transportation Cabinet will provide notice of the weekend closure dates as soon as the agency receives word that the contractor is prepared to proceed.
