The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet released a list of several western Kentucky communities that will be impacting drivers through the first week of April.
KYTC sent these locations and information for District 2. The District 2 area serves Caldwell, Christian, Daviess, Hancock, Henderson, Hopkins, McLean, Muhlenberg, Ohio, Union, and Webster Counties
KYTC District 2 anticipates the following locations will impact traffic the week of March 29 - April 4.
Motorists should anticipate reduced speeds on KY 115 in Christian County between Carneal Lane and Mason Lane (I-24 - Pembroke). The above-mentioned section will have a reduced speed limit of 45 MPH for the entire length of the work zone.
Active work will be at intermittent locations along the 6.93-mile corridor, with the presence of flaggers and lane closures during working hours. Motorists are encouraged to reduce their speed. The contractor will be on-site from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday. The project is slated for completion in the fall of 2021.
The Regional Water Resource Agency in Daviess County has closed KY 2699/Goetz Drive at the intersection with South Town Boulevard (mile point 0.0) in Owensboro. The lane restriction is necessary to run a bypass sewer in an effort to address a failed sewer system. Currently, Goetz Drive is closed with local traffic only from U.S. 431 (Frederica Street) to South Town Boulevard (KY 2121). Work continues through March. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes until further notice. The closure began on Thursday, February 25.
U.S. 41-A – MP 0-2 A contractor continues to perform work adjacent to the roadway. Motorists should expect to be occasionally stopped for short durations to allow construction equipment to cross the road. The project will ultimately widen US 41-A to 5 lanes including curb, gutter, and sidewalk. The right turn lane on U.S.41-A beginning at Briarwood drive to the intersection with U.S. 41 (Main Street) will remain closed. Motorists can still make a right turn, but they will need to stay in the straight lane until they reach the intersection, then make the right turn. The closure is necessary to complete drainage work.
Motorists can expect slow traffic flows directed by flaggers on U.S. 41-A. The contractor will begin removing the existing asphalt shoulder and constructing the sub-grade for the new portion of the roadway. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes during this time when possible.
U.S. 62- MP 16.5-18 - Scotty’s Contracting has completed the construction of piers, sidewalks, and entrance pavements. Crews are getting the bridge beams prepared for the bridge deck. The purpose of this work is to construct U.S. 62 into a 3 lane road and adding a curb, gutter, and sidewalk. Completion is set for the Fall of 2021.
