Frankfort Railroad Bridge

    L&N Bridge (Louisville & Nashville Railroad)

    The Frankfort Railroad Bridge carries R.J. Corman Railroad over the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky.


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

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