*Cynthiana Democrat, Nov. 19, 1953 -- The first traffic since Sept. 29 started moving Monday night over the newly erected steel span across Main Licking River at Claysville after the maintenance crew of the State Department of Highways completed laying the flooring of the new span. The new bridge replaces the old covered structure destroyed by fire. Only 45 days were required to erect the new Bailey bridge sections (army surplus material), thus topping the previous bridge building record claimed by the State Highway Department of Georgia which erected a similar span in 70 work days.
