Edmonson Voice Report:
Residents accustomed to using Little Beaver Creek Road in Warren County will need to make alternate plans. Starting Tuesday, August 24th and what will likely last through October, a bridge over the roadway will be undergoing replacement, according to Warren County Public Works Director Josh Moore.
Warren Fiscal Court has accepted a $363,709 bid from Stewart Richey Construction to replace a low water ford bridge over Little Beaver Creek near the Edmonson County line, located off of Wingfield Church Road and will use $80,000 in emergency bridge funds from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for the project, Moore said.
The bridge is typically inundated by the flooding stream it crosses, and the replacement is expected to alleviate the majority of such problems, he said.
The bridge is about 50 feet long. Moore worked with the Army Corps of Engineers, Kentucky’s Division of Water, and other agencies to get the necessary approvals.
Signage has been posted in the area to warn motorists of the construction, Moore said.
