Williamstown Mayor Rick Skinner doesn’t want the bridge at the south end of town to close.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials said the bridge would close on March 1 due to safety concerns.
Skinner has asked the state to reconsider closing the bridge and keeping at least open to cars and trucks.
“I know the state considered two options, either to close the bridge or to set a weight limit at 6,000 pounds, but chose to close it,” Skinner said.
He contacted state road officials and asked them to change their minds.
