Ky. reaches $3 million settlement with shipping company for damaged bridge
A cargo vessel crushed the Eggner's Ferry Bridge more than five years ago.
BENTON, Ky. (WDRB) -- Five years after the Eggner's Ferry Bridge in southern Kentucky was crushed by a cargo vessel, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has reached a settlement.
KYTC announced Tuesday that the Foss Maritime Company agreed to pay $3,375,000 in a settlement agreement that was reached in February.
The MC Delta Mariner, a large cargo ship that transports rocket components for NASA, struck and damaged a 322-foot section of the bridge on Jan. 26, 2012. The state spent $7 million to replace it.
No other details of the lawsuit have been released.
