Calloway County, KY

KYTC says the traffic signal at the intersection of U.S. 641/North 12th Street and KY 1327/Chestnut Street in Murray has malfunctioned and has been taken out of service Tuesday night, Sept. 2. Traffic is now being controlled by temporary four-way stop signs. An electrical crew will be dispatched to check the signal as soon as possible during daylight hours. Drivers should use appropriate caution at the intersection of U.S. 641/North 12th Street and KY 1327/Chestnut Street in Murray.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is seeking public input for construction of a new bridge on KY 893 in Calloway County. KYTC is providing public notice that it is in the design and environmental phase for replacement of the KY 893 bridge over McCullough Fork. The project is along KY 893 at mile point 22.92. This is approximately 4 miles east of Hazel. The maintenance of traffic plan consists of maintaining traffic on the existing bridge and approaches during construction. Traffic may be reduced to one lane with flagger control during the tie-in of the approaches at the beginning and end of the project. About 500 vehicles travel this section of KY 893 in an average day. The Cabinet expects this project to qualify as a Categorical Exclusion in accordance with the Federal Register Regulation 23 CFR 771.117 (d) (3). The design and environmental surveys are on-going. Anyone with questions about this project should contact Blake Beyer, Environmental Coordinator for KYTC District 1 at (270) 898-2431. Additional information is also available at the KYTC District 1 Office at 5501 Kentucky Dam Road, Paducah, KY 42003. This project may be identified as Item #1-1132.00.

Caldwell County, KY
A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans to restrict traffic along a section of Interstate 24 in Trigg, Caldwell, and Lyon Counties starting Monday, August 4. Interstate 24 will be restricted to one lane at various locations between the 45-mile marker and the 69-mile marker. This is for concrete pavement repairs and bridge maintenance work. This work to repair and replace a number of failed concrete slabs is spread along an extended section of I-24 from near the Trigg-Christian County line to near the KY 293 Exit 45 Interchange in Lyon County. The contractor plans to begin work along the westbound lanes near the Trigg-Christian County Line and work westward along this 24-mile section, then turn and work along the eastbound lanes. Drivers should be prepared to encounter slowing and merging traffic as they approach this work zone. The work zone will include a 55 mile per hour speed limit with an enhanced enforcement presence. The anticipated completion date is December 1.

  • Paving along KY 121-Business will be at night to reduce traffic disruptions. Both highways will be milled on Wednesday with base repairs at several locations.

Motorists should be on alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers.

The paving is expected to take a week to complete, weather permitting.

Livingston County, KY

US Hwy 60 has reopened to traffic at Dyer Hill Curve in Livingston County. Please remember that this is still an active work zone. They have about two weeks of work to finish out tie-ins to side roads and place a final layer of asphalt. Please continue to use caution in this area near the 19 mm in Livingston County.

There is a traffic advisory for US 60 Cumberland River Bridge at Smithland. Following analysis of the most recent inspection of the US 60 Cumberland River Bridge at Smithland, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has adjusted the maximum load limit for the bridge structure. In recent months, Kentucky State Police (KSP) Troopers and Officers with the KSP Division of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement had stepped up enforcement of the bridge load limit. The enhanced enforcement was in response to a number of recent complaints about overweight trucks crossing the bridge and vehicles exceeding the 35 mile per hour bridge speed limit.

That enforcement effort was based on the following weight limits:

Type I Trucks 23 Tons (2 axle)

Type II Trucks 23 Tons (3 axle)

Type III Trucks 26 Tons (4 axle)

Type IV Trucks 35 Tons (5 axle-Semi)

After analyzing the findings of a detailed inspection of the bridge conducted in July, bridge engineers have adjusted the weight limits to the following:

Type I Trucks 20 Tons (2 axle)

Type II Trucks 27 Tons (3 axle)

Type III Trucks 28 Tons (4 axle)

Type IV Trucks 40 Tons (5 axle-Semi)

New signage indicating the change should be in place in a few days. The old load limit had been in place since April of 1988. By law, load limit information is posted at the end of all Kentucky bridges. It is the responsibility of the Commercial Drivers License holder to obey bridge weight restrictions. While farm trucks hauling crops and trucks hauling certain natural resources are given a margin of error on some highways, all bridge load limits still apply and cannot be exceeded. While the enhanced enforcement effort is primarily directed at weight limits on the Smithland Bridge, officers stationed at the bridge will also be enforcing the 35 mile per hour speed limit for all vehicles at the river crossing. The US 60 Cumberland River bridge at Smithland, also known as the Lucy Jefferson Lewis Memorial Bridge and the Smithland Bridge, is at US 60 Livingston County mile point 12.348. The 1,817 ft. through truss structure was opened to traffic in 1931. About 5,200 vehicles cross the bridge in an average day.

Lyon County, KY

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans to restrict traffic along a section of Interstate 24 in Trigg, Caldwell, and Lyon Counties starting Monday, August 4. Interstate 24 will be restricted to one lane at various locations between the 45-mile marker and the 69-mile marker. This is for concrete pavement repairs and bridge maintenance work. This work to repair and replace a number of failed concrete slabs is spread along an extended section of I-24 from near the Trigg-Christian County line to near the KY 293 Exit 45 Interchange in Lyon County. The contractor plans to begin work along the westbound lanes near the Trigg-Christian County Line and work westward along this 24-mile section, then turn and work along the eastbound lanes. Drivers should be prepared to encounter slowing and merging traffic as they approach this work zone. The work zone will include a 55 mile per hour speed limit with an enhanced enforcement presence. The anticipated completion date is December 1.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans to make adjustments to a traffic signal at the intersection of US 641 and US 62 East of Eddyville in Lyon County to facilitate ongoing construction along a section of US 62. The traffic signal at US 62 mile point 10.465 and US 641 mile point 0.0 has been traffic activated. Due to construction, the traffic detection loops will be disconnected starting around Noon today and technicians will put the signal into timer mode. Due to the addition of lanes along US 62, a new signal will eventually be constructed for this intersection. The switch from traffic activation to timer mode is to facilitate that work and other construction along US 62.

In addition to US 62 and US 641, this signal also handles traffic from KY 3305 at mile point 1.811, which is the south leg of the intersection.

Drivers should be aware of the timed phasing at this signal and take note of changes in traffic flow it may create at the intersection. Driverse should also be alert for traffic shifts that may be required to facilitate ongoing construction along US 62 in this area. It has an anticipated completion in the summer of 2015.

Christian, Marshall and McCracken Counties, KY

Gov. Beshear announced on Thursday that work has begun on a $3.1 million, 24-mile installation project on I-24. It will include the addition of more median cable barriers. The current median cable barrier installation is in two sections along I-24.

The project in Paducah starts near the Ohio River (mile point 1.5) and continues past the U.S. 68 exit 16 interchange (mile point 18) in Marshall County.

In Christian County, the project begins near the U.S. 41-Alternate exit 86 interchange (mile point 85.5) and extends to the Kentucky/Tennessee line (mile point 93.4). This section is a continuation of a nearly 16-mile installation project finished in July.

McCracken County, KY

Traffic advisory for the new Ledbetter Bridge on Tuesday Morning The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict westbound traffic to one lane on the New US 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter starting at 6:00 a.m., CDT, on Tuesday, September 16, 2014. This lane restriction for westbound traffic only is to allow KYTC personnel, area news media and the public to observe round one of controlled explosive demolition on the Old Ledbetter Bridge scheduled for 8:00 a.m., Tuesday, weather permitting. All westbound traffic along US 60 on the bridge approaches and bridge deck will be moved to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone. There will be no stopping allowed on the bridge in this work zone. Drivers who regularly travel across the New US 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter between 6:00 a.m. and about 10:00 a.m., should consider allowing extra travel time for the Tuesday morning commute as traffic congestion is likely in the area due to preparations for the first of several controlled explosive detonations on the Old Ledbetter Bridge. Drivers should use extra caution due to personnel on the bridge in close proximity to traffic flow. There will be an enhanced enforcement presence in this work zone. The New US 60 Tennessee River Bridge is at Livingston County mile point 0.0 and about the 20 mile marker in McCracken County.

A contractor for KYTC has started saw cutting to prepare the first section of the Old Ledbetter Bridge near Paducah to be brought down by explosives. This was originally scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 10 but due to a slow start on the cutting process and the potential for weather issues this week, the use of explosives for the controlled demolition of a truss on the Old Ledbetter Bridge at Paducah has been rescheduled for 8:00 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 16th. Plans for the public to view the detonation from the New US 60 Tennessee River Bridge remain the same. The contractor is cutting the left descending truss (on the McCracken side) of the Tennessee River in key locations. The saw work will weaken the truss so it can be taken down by a controlled explosion planned for 8 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 11. The cuts will allow the truss to break into about ten 40 foot sections when controlled explosions knock the truss from the piers.
The saw cutting crew will continue their work on Tuesday. They will know by the end of work on Tuesday if the controlled explosion scheduled for Thursday will move ahead as scheduled. The contract, and area law enforcement, are making arrangements for the public to watch the detonation from a safe distance. The public may also watch the detonation from Delta Road on the Livingston County side of the river.
There will be a strictly enforced 1,500 ft. clear zone around the blast site. Homeowners with that clear zone may stay in their homes, or join the public in watching the demolition. The U.S. Coast Guard will be halting boat traffic on the Tennessee River before the explosion. After an all-clear after the detonation, the coast guard will allow river traffic to resume and the contractor will use two barge-mounted cranes to pull the collapsed truss from the river.

Starting on Sept. 4, a contractor for the City of Paducah is making improvements to the intersection of Pines Road and Buckner Lane. The work may be finished by the end of the day Friday. If not, then the work will be completed early next week. One lane of each road will remain open to traffic; however, please use caution, and watch for work crews and traffic control devices. Due to expected delays, it is recommended to find an alternate route if possible. The work at the intersection by Harper Construction involves the construction of an island structure on Pines Road. The raised island will better direct the flow of traffic at the intersection. Public Information Officer Pam Spencer says, “The width of Pines Road at the intersection often creates confusion for drivers since they don't have designated lanes or a visual cue on where to stop or turn. Even though they are both two-lane roads, Pines Road is significantly wider at the intersection as compared to Buckner Lane.”

The City of Paducah Engineering-Public Works Department wants to inform the public that crews with Harper Construction will begin Monday, August 25 to rehabilitate a section of Mayfield Road from Wheeler Avenue to the intersection of Mayfield Road and Irvin Cobb Drive. The intersection will be closed to through traffic to facilitate the roadway work. A detour will be in place to guide traffic around the work zone. Please use caution, and watch for the work crews and traffic control devices. This work will take approximately two weeks, weather-permitting.Paducah Water will close a portion of Ring Road around Kentucky Oaks Mall starting Monday, August 25 for the relocation of water mains as part of the Olivet Church Road Improvement Project. The water main relocation work includes the excavation and restoration of the roadway to install a 10” and a 12” water main within steel encasement. Paducah Water will begin staging materials and completing other preparatory work later this week (8/20). The section of road that will be closed to through traffic is between Sears and the shopping center that contains Old Navy, Shoe Carnival, and other stores. Access to the businesses will be maintained throughout the construction; however, through traffic will not be allowed on a small section of Ring Road between Sears and Old Navy. Weather-permitting, the work will take two to three weeks for completion.Starting on May 27, access to the Paducah City Hall at 300 South 5th Street will be limited to the 5th Street entrance. Employees and the Paducah City Employees Credit Union customers still will have access to city hall from the basement breezeway. The 4th Street entrance will be closed, and access under the concrete roof canopy surrounding the building will be restricted. Construction is still going on, according to city hall.
