Contract awarded for repair work on Fishing Creek Bridge

A contract has been awarded for needed repair work on a frequently-traveled bridge in the area.

Work is set to begin on Fishing Creek Bridge on Highway 80 in Pulaski County later this year, according to officials with the District 8 Transportation Cabinet office.

The project will consist of the bridge deck being replaced along with some rehabilitation of the bridge beams and structure itself.

No start date has been determined at this time, but according to the contract, work will not start on the bridge before Labor Day due to the high volume of traffic in the area during the spring and summer months.

The total cost of the project is estimated to be more than $7 million.
