The final design process of the Weisenberger Mill Bridge has officially begun and the project team is moving forward with the single lane bridge alternative after 6 years of planning and preparation. Magistrate Chad Wallace has stood behind the citizens of his district (District 3) to work in voicing their concerns and developing their plans for this new bridge.
The delays were due to the federal funding process, environmental reports, and historical preservation. The purpose of the project is “to provide a safe structurally sound crossing on Weisenburger Mill Road over the South Fork of Elkorn Creek, while limiting impacts to the surrounding environment.” This project will also improve response times for emergency services for these citizens.
The new bridge parts were built in a factory in Chattanooga, TN and brought to Woodford to be assembled. The new bridge was moved into place this afternoon.
Scott County Fiscal Court is excited to see the effects this project will have in improving the quality of life for both Scott County and Woodford County Citizens.
