Frankfort, Franklin County, Kentucky
The Singing Bridge (also known as the St. Clair Street bridge) is a two-lane vehicle and pedestrian bridge in Frankfort, Kentucky that is so named because of the humming sound it makes when driven over.
As of 2019, the bridge carries over 5,000 vehicles per day across the Kentucky River. The over-400 foot long bridge is a Pennsylvania truss bridge built in 1893 by King Bridge Company.
In 2019, the 125 year old bridge's load rating was reduced from 9 tons (1988) to 3 tons, then it was closed to vehicle traffic in late 2020 when an accident caused damage to a truss and rail. Repairs were started in March 2021 to repair the damage and to inspect for further damage caused when an unmoored floating marina's roof hit the bottom of the bridge on March 3, 2021 during high river levels.
