FOX 17 News has just learned that state leaders today will award the contract to rebuild the Eggners Ferry Bridge over the Tennessee river in Kentucky.
This is a big step for Trigg County. A barge hit the bridge in 2012 sending the middle of bridge crashing into the water bringing traffic to complete halt.
The announcement will be at noon. The multi-million dollar structure will be four lanes.
Stay tuned to FOX 17, as we bring you more details on this breaking story throughout the day.
