A new bridge in Pike County, just off US 23, that connects Airport Road to Venters Lane is now open to traffic.
Robin Justice, Bridge Engineer for Highway District 12, said the new structure offers much safer access to US 23 from Harmon’s Branch and Classic Lanes than using Venters Lane, the road which runs from the bowling alley down the hill to the four lane.
“For years this was the only road into the area,” Justice explained. “Now it is actually just a service road used by delivery vehicles. Residents and the general public are encouraged to use the new bridge off Airport Road just behind Walters Toyota, between Walters Toyota and Classic Lanes.”
