Demolition of old Eggners Ferry Bridge possibly delayed due to Ospreys
It might take longer to complete demolition on the old Eggners Ferry Bridge due to Ospreys.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says several Osprey eggs have been laid directly on the truss of the old bridge with no nests.
Since traffic had been moved to the new US 68/KY 80 Eggners Ferry Bridge, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet had hoped to speed up demolition of the old bridge.
The eggs on the truss could potentially put the demolition on hold since Ospreys are federally protected.
It may take weeks or months to determine if the eggs are viable.
