The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has posted a 3-ton weight limit at a culvert bridge on US 60 just west of Owingsville in Bath County as a public safety precaution following an engineering analysis.
The bridge is located on US 60 at Hurricane Creek (milepoint 4.2) just east of Mae Berryman Way.
During a statewide load-rating analysis of select steel culverts, Transportation Cabinet bridge preservation engineers determined the reduced weight limit was necessary due to insufficient supporting material above the culvert.
The Transportation Cabinet will work to repair the bridge as soon as possible. The 3-ton weight limit will remain posted until repairs are made.
