L&N Bridge (Louisville & Nashville Railroad)

The L&N Bridge spans the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky. It was constructed in 1929 by the American Bridge Company of New York for the Louisville & Nashville Railroad adjacent to the Broadway Bridge, which had been used as a combination railroad, horse-and-buggy (later automobile) and pedestrian crossing.1

The Pennsylvania truss with Warren through truss and deck plate girder approach spans cost $600,000 to erect.1
