GOLDEN POND, KY: Land Between The Lakes has re-opened Forest Service (FS) Roads 130, 108, and 134 to the public following temporary maintenance closures.

The Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) completed construction of a new bridge over Smith Creek on Newby Cemetery Road (FS Rd 130). This new bridge provides access to fishing, hunting, cemetery visitation, open lands management, hiking, camping, driving, and wildlife viewing. Bridge design and construction costs were funded by FHWA’s Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads program (ERFO).

The new bridge is 64 feet long, 16 feet wide and constructed of pre-cast structural slabs. FHWA also finished replacing large culverts on FS Rd 108 to Demumbers Bay and FS Rd 134 to Energy Lake.

Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area manages more than 170,000 acres in western Kentucky and Tennessee as part of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture’s public lands program. Land Between The Lakes offers outdoor recreation, lake access, land management, and environmental education to over 1.4 million visitors annually.
