Officials Discuss Cleanup of Bridge Collapse
PADUCAH, KY - The owners of a boat that slammed into and collapsed a bridge over Kentucky Lake have been talking with western Kentucky officials about how to deal with tons of debris at the bottom of the waterway.
Judge-executives in Marshall and Trigg counties said they have been in contact with representatives from Foss Maritime about how to handle the wreckage left from the Jan. 27 bridge collapse. Foss Maritime is the shipping company that operates the Delta Mariner, the cargo vessel that collapsed a 300-foot section of the Eggner's Ferry Bridge.
A Foss Maritime spokesman said company officials are open to ideas that are environmentally sound and fair.
Trigg County Judge-Executive Stan Humphries told The Paducah Sun that the company didn't make an offer, but is talking about the cleanup.
