Gov. Andy Beshear today announced that contractors have successfully stabilized the flood-damaged Grange City Covered Bridge in Fleming County.

“With the bridge now protectively cradled by steel support beams, this historic structure treasured by the people of Fleming County and the entire Buffalo Trace area is once again safe,” Gov. Beshear said.

In late May, floodwaters inundated the 1860s covered bridge where it spans Fox Creek adjacent to KY 111 just north of Grange City.

Work to rebuild the KY 111 bridge over a branch of Hillsboro Creek in Fleming County has been delayed, and the highway will remain closed longer than anticipated.

Contractors began the KY 111 bridge project in early April at mile marker 7.6 just north of the KY 1515 (Orchard Road) intersection between Poplar Plains and Hillsboro, closing the road to remove the old superstructure and place new steel beams and construct a new concrete driving surface.
