Zula Bridges

Zula Bridge

Four bridges carry and carried KY Route 90 over Otter Creek in Zula, Kentucky.


The first crossing was most likely a covered bridge or a simple truss, which was replaced with a three-span concrete beam bridge in 1940. It boasted a length of 159 feet, a main span length of 50 feet, and a width of 19 feet. KY Route 90 was realigned on a higher alignment via a five-span concrete beam bridge in 1949, with a length of 320 feet, a main span length of 80 feet, and a width of 24 feet. All three former alignments were bypassed completely when KY Route 90 was moved upstream with a three-span steel girder crossing in 1979, which featured a total length of 526 feet, a main span length of 230 feet, and a width of 44 feet.
