Historic Greenup Span to be Demolished for new Bridge
Posted: 1-Jul-2005 3:47AM CDT

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will demolish a historic bridge in Greenup after all. Concern from the public caused the cabinet to reconsider demolishing the bridge–which is on the National Registrar of Historic Places; however, no one came forward to offer to maintain the bridge, so it will be demolished to make way for a replacement. The current bridge has been closed since 2003 when an inspection found it was unsafe to carry traffic.
