Historic Kentucky Bridge Free for the Taking

A two-lane steel bridge is free for the taking in Lamero, Ky.

Officials from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet want to give away an 85-year-old bridge on Kentucky 490 near the Rockcastle-Laurel County line in order to build a new span over the Rockcastle River, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported Sunday.

The state will disassemble the bridge for free and move it to the location of your choice, provided you rebuild it and promise to maintain it for 20 years.

Kentucky officials hope a county or town will apply for the bridge to use it as a walking or bicycling path. The cabinet is soliciting proposals for the span through March 28.
