LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Video captured Wednesday shows remnants of a marina floating down the Kentucky River.
Officials say remnants of the marina, with boat slips and a building, broke away on Herrington Lake during flooding over the weekend. It traveled down the river near the Anderson and Woodford County line, according to The Anderson News, where it passed under the Tyrone Bridge on U.S. 62.
At one point during its trip down the river Wednesday afternoon, the marina crossed under the Singing Bridge in downtown Frankfort. It was captured on camera by Thomas Guarnieri.
Here is a video of the Singing Bridge as the marina passed below it on the KY River.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) closed three Kentucky River bridges in Frankfort as a precaution, the Capital Avenue Bridge, the U.S. 127 Bridge at West Clinton Street and the U.S. 127 Bridge at Metro Street. According to a news release from the agency, those three bridges have since reopened to traffic.
KYTC said the marina scraped the Capital Avenue Bridge and the Singing Bridge as it passed underneath them. Though no significant damage was caused, inspectors will conduct a more in-depth inspection when water levels fall, KYTC said.
The Singing Bridge previously closed after it was hit by a vehicle in late 2020.
