Bowles Creek Bridge Reopened After Damage
By West Kentucky Star Staff
HICKMAN COUNTY - KY 1772 in Hickman County has reopened at the Bowles Creek Bridge.

After completing a deck repair project on the bridge last Friday, someone moved the Road Closed signs and drove through the wet concrete, creating a new major repair to the bridge deck that took about a week to complete.

This week the bridge crew worked to repair the new damage. Instead of replacing the original work at a cost of $2,300, the crew used a milling machine to remove the surface concrete on the damaged area, and replaced it with a less expensive overlay.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will be monitoring the site to ensure the concrete decking on the milled area will hold up.

The KYTC is asking for the public's assistance with identifying the owner of the vehicle that caused the additional damage. The driver is facing several hundred dollars in citations for moving the signs, and could be held responsible for approximately $1,500 in extra concrete.
