Eggners Ferry Bridge Collapse

Monday, February 6, 2012

This morning the 8200-ton cargo ship Delta Mariner was moved downstream from Eggner's Ferry Bridge.  Workers cleared most of the wreckage from the ship, freeing it from the collapsed span of the bridge.

Below are photos courtesy of Keith Todd showing the wreckage on Saturday as well as the ship moving downstream today.

Kentucky Lake Sunset

Sunsets at Kentucky Lake are special. You can find them on the eastern banks of Kentucky Lake looking west across a mile of ripples and waves. There's nothing quite like experiencing a sunset on Kentucky Lake.
