After carrying passengers from Owen County to Henry County and back for 80 years, the Gratz bridge was blasted Tuesday, leaving only a memory and some worry behind.
The iconic Gratz bridge on KY 22, with its distinctive appearance, was a landmark in the community since it opened in 1931. Officials with the Kentucky Department of Transportation said the “Warren through truss” construction of the bridge was based on a 1848 design.
Given the age of the old bridge, a replacement project was added to the Kentucky State Highway Road Plan in 2000.
