The Chenault Bridge formerly carried KY Route 34 over the Dix River and Herrington Lake in Boyle and Garrard County, Kentucky. The three-span Baltimore through truss was constructed in 1924 by the F.K. Ketler Company of Chicago, Illinois. 1

It was rehabilitated in 1961 and bypassed in 1992 when KY Route 34 was realigned. The one-lane crossing remained in use for automobiles until 2015.
