Old Ledbetter Bridge blasting delayed

Ledbetter Bridge

Round two of controlled explosive demolition of the Old Ledbetter Bridge has been pushed back a day. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokesman Keith Todd said the next detonation is now planned for 8:00 am next Wednesday, October 1. The revised detonation schedule was requested by the contractor to allow additional time to complete removal of steel from the first blast, and for cutting the section of truss nearest the Livingston County shore of the Tennessee River to prepare for the next round of explosives. There will be a lane restriction for westbound traffic on the new bridge to allow the public to see the detonation safely. (KYTC; Updated: 7:30 am, Thursday)
