Proposed Basket-Handle Tied Arch Bridge
Design continues on the Lake Barkley crossing with an anticipated completion in late 2014. It is expected to be advertised for bid before the end of 2014, with construction beginning in early 2015.
An advance construction contract was let and awarded in early 2013. This Kentucky Lake contract is for the construction of a bridge over an existing lagoon located on the west side of the lake and for placing fill material to construct both causeways. While the fill material for the causeways is generally complete, the construction of the lagoon bridge continues.
The Kentucky Lake main span arch bridge, bridge approaches (excluding the lagoon bridge) and final roadway paving has been awarded with construction to start in early 2014.
