The Old River Road bridge -- constructed in 1930 over the Beargrass Cut Off -- was decommissioned in 2013 and is now a walking bridge part of the 105-mile Louisville Loop. This station overlooks the confluence of present-day Beargrass Creek and the Ohio River (river mile 602). Please help us document the changes in the confluence area at this photo station. Said to the most biodiverse avian area in all of Kentucky, this station will reveal sediment deposition, the effects of reversible current on the riparian area and the area's bird life.
A partnership between River City Paddlesports and Waterfront Botanical Gardens, this trio of Chronolog stations aims to engage citizens in the ephemeral beauty, vegetation, animal life and waters of Jefferson County's Beargrass Creek and the Ohio River upstream of downtown Louisville, Kentucky.
