The Jesse Stuart Memorial Bridge is a plate girder bridge crosses the Ohio River between Greenup County, Kentucky and Scioto County, Ohio.
Construction on a bridge atop the Greenup Locks and Dam was begun by the Traylor Brothers of Evansville in March 1984. 1 The project, costing $18.3 million, was funded by $10.8 million from the federal government, $5 million from Ohio, and $2.5 million from Kentucky.
The bridge, named the Jesse Stuart Bridge after the Greenup County native and author, was inaugurated on October 31, 1986. 1 It opened to traffic a few weeks later, providing a connection between US Route 23 in Greenup County, Kentucky, and US Route 52 in Scioto County, Ohio. It later provided a connection to the AA Highway.
