Lytle Fork Phantom Bridge, Biddle, Kentucky

The Lytle Fork Phantom Bridge, Biddle, Kentucky

This mystery bridge is located in Scott County, Kentucky about 10 miles northwest of downtown Georgetown. This abandoned steel pony truss bridge is about 25 feet long and spans Lytle Fork.

Apparently this bridge was used on a county road but the Scott County Highway Department doesn’t have any record of it and the Scott County Historical Society doesn’t know anything about it either. I’ve been unable to contact the current property owner so I’ve hit a deadend here.

Guessing from the design, I would say the bridge was built int the 1920s to 1930s. Aerial photos show that it was moved to this location sometime between 1986 and 1998 although a floor was never installed that I can see. Which means it was probably never used by anyone trying to cross the Lytle Fork Creek.

If anyone has any additional information about this span, please let me know.
