H.L. Spurlock Power Plant Bridge

The H.L. Spurlock Power Plant Bridge is a seven span, 700-foot long crossing Lawrence Creek and KY 8 west of Maysville, Kentucky.


Constructed as a railroad bridge in 1977 that carried ash from the H.L. Spurlock Power Plant to a landfill, the span was converted into a truck-only bridge in 1997.1 The project required the removal of existing rails, ballast and walkway down to the plate girder beams, and the installation of new structural elements, concrete decking and gravel roadway.
