1932,2006 US-62 Jo Blackburn Bridge over Kentucky River at Tyrone, KY

(Bridge Hunter; Historic Bridges; B&TSatellite)

You can tell by the railings that this is not just another UCEB (Ugly Concrete Eyesore Bridge). The bridge on the right is Young's High Bridge.
The railings are not original. Fortunately, after they widened the deck by two feet in 2006, they made the effort to replicate the original railings.  [HistoricBridges, B&T]

Looking at a map shows why another name for this bridge is the Tyrone "S" Bridge.

The bridge "was dedicated to Joseph Clay Styles Blackburn, a former United States congressman, senator, and governor of the Panama Canal Zone."
