KY 1129 Brush Creek Bridge in Fulton County Reduced to 3-Ton Load Limit
Load rating reduced due to substructure deterioration
PADUCAH, Ky. (Aug. 26, 2021) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has placed a 3-ton load limit on the KY 1129 Brush Creek Bridge in Fulton County.
The Brush Creek Bridge at KY 1129 mile point 7.696 is now restricted to a 3-ton load limit after an inspection found deterioration of the bridge substructure. Signs indicating the new load rating will be erected as soon as possible.
The 3-ton load limit restricts the bridge to vehicles no heavier than a passenger vehicle or pickup truck.
The Brush Creek Bridge is along KY 1129 between McClellan Road and KY 239.
In coming weeks KYTC District 1 engineers will be conducting a further evaluation of the bridge substructure to determine if it can be repaired or should be replaced.
On some maps, Brush Creek is listed as Rush Creek at this site.
