Silver Creek bridge closures scheduled in Madison County this week for overlay project


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of a scheduled bridge deck overlay project. The work will be for the bridge located on Estill Street/KY 1016 over Silver Creek. A deck overlay is a preventative maintenance action. The deterioration of a bridge deck occurs due to a variety of reasons; general use, exposure to the elements, salting of roads during winter, and accidents. All of these circumstances contribute to the worsening of deck condition.

The overlay serves two main purposes. The first is to remove all unsound deck material. The second purpose is to waterproof the deck with a latex concrete overlay of approximately 1.5 inches in thickness. Monday, June 27 through Friday, July 8 – work will begin at approximately 7 a.m. Monday morning with the bridge closed during the above time frame.

  1. I just wanted some more information on the topic in this article. And it gives me plenty of unnecessary staff. I wish I got the details on as I used to do before. Experiments are not always good. Sometimes an old trustful resource is worth sticking to it.
