Bridge carries around 800 vehicles a day.
(June 20, 2012) UPDATE - Repairs to the KY 1037 Railroad Overpass south of Clinton in Hickman County are complete. The roadway has reopened at this site.
The wooden structure continues to be restricted to one lane traffic with a 3-ton load limit. The load limit restricts the structure to vehicles no heavier than a passenger vehicle or an empty standard pickup truck.
KYTC Engineers expect a new concrete structure planned for the site to be ready for construction sometime late this year or early next year.
KY 1037 remains closed in Hickman County at the edge of Clinton due to a fire on a wooden railroad overpass early this morning. Area fire departments responded about 4:30 a.m., CDT, to the structure that carries vehicle traffic over a main rail line.
