LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A backhoe and its operator fell when part
of an unused bridge that was being demolished in central Kentucky
No one was hurt in the incident.
Department of Highways spokeswoman Andrea Clifford says the
department was demolishing the old bridge and plans to replace it
by next month.
The bridge at U.S. 60 crosses Floyds Fork just east of
Louisville, near Valhalla Golf Club.
The highway will have four lanes when the replacement bridge
opens. The bridge being used now has two lanes.
According the department's plans, the bridge replacement is
expected to cost $5 million.
