William Turner On Eggners Ferry Bridge

The demolition of the old Eggners Ferry Bridge Monday morning brings an end to a historic structure that has served the public for 83 years. Christian County Historian William Turner, who was among those on hand at Kenlake State Resort Park amphitheater to watch the implosion of the old bridge, said it was historic to watch the end of a structure.


   


Turner adds he has shared during his lifetime the thoughts of many who have crossed the bridge.


   


Turner adds the communities on both sides of the Eggners Ferry Bridge will never forget the accident involving the Delta Mariner in January of 2012.


   
Turner adds he is glad the new bridge will retain the Eggners Ferry name.
