Central Kentucky Bridge Looked Over By Inspectors

The Kentucky Department of Transportation routinely inspects the state's 14,000 bridges every two years.

Thursday, a team of inspectors were checking the super structure of the U.S. 62 Tyrone Bridge on the Anderson-Woodford County line.

Officials say the team looks for excessive ware, rust and deterioration, in other words, anything that could cause the bridge to be unstable or insufficient.

Inspectors don't expect to find any major defects on the Tyronne Bridge, but we should know the results of the inspection within the next few weeks.

    It's always amazes me that after something tragic happens, such as the bridge collapsing into the Mississippi, everybody starts getting everything inspected, when they shouldn't wait. I was so happy when they finally replaced the old bridge going over Lake Cumberland. My knuckles would go white from where I would grip my steering wheel when it came to crossing that old bridge, because I was just waiting for it to collapse. If these things don't look structurally sound, replace them. That's what a lot of our taxes that we pay out are for.
