Cherokee Park Bridge #2 to undergo construction beginning March 17
Bridge #2 in Cherokee Park, located just south of the base of Cochran Hill Road, will be closed for approximately two months beginning March 17 for a restoration project.
Pedestrians and vehicles will be detoured around the bridge construction site via the attached map. Construction is funded through the Bridges Kentucky program administered by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
Bridge #2 is a single-span concrete deck bridge with concrete rectangular balustrades and is the only non-Milan arch bridge in the park. It will receive a new bridge deck and rails, in addition to improvements to the balustrades and toe walls.
The general contractor on the work is Scott and Murphy. The project cost is approximately $700,000.
