I have always thought that if this area wants to grow economically the bridge should have connected 52 to the Industrial Parkway. It would have been about half way between the Ashland bridge and the Greenup Dam bridge, promote commerce by allowing trucks to commute, and the way it is now Russell loses.

it should run from where you turn to go up to bellefonte hospital all the way over the city to straight to 141 exit. that would benefit the people out in rural lawrence county alot better.

It connects to a major 4 lane in kentucky, 23, why not to 52? Why run it right down in to a dead town that's going to now have semi trucks traveling it? Looks like it could have connected to 52 and had one or two off ramps into town.

Unfortunately Kentucky (via Ashland) usually comes out on top at the retail end. More stores,restaurants,and businesses to choose from.
The ball was dropped in Ironton in that aspect, and is still being fumbled around to this day, by the fearless leaders.

The one thing Ashland can keep is Wallmart, JMO. One would kill many of the small businesses Ironton does still have.
Just joking

I started a thread a while back about the Mothman as a way to get people's attention about the safety of this bridge. Since I posted that thread, there have been 2 serious incidents with this structure. I'm not a Mothman believer nor do I believe anyone is going to warn us of looming disasters, but I am taken back a bit by these events. Scary stuff. I think our best protection is common sense. We know what happened in Point Pleasant and it could happen here too. So for me and my family, we'll use the Ashland bridge.

Ironton benefits a lot from the bridge being where it's at too. I live in Flatwoods at the bottom of Wheeler hill like 3 minutes from the bridge. Do you think I drive all the way to Ashland to get beer when I can just cross over right in Ironton and swing through the carry-out or hit up CVS? Nope. I know a LOT of folks on this side of the river feel the same way. And people that live even further down like in Wurtland or Greenup. Ya'll get a lot of KY's money over there too. And when I want some late night taco bell? Ironton. Not Russell.
