Kentucky

Ballard County

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close a section of KY 1105/Oscar Road in Ballard County starting Monday, September 25. KY 1105/Oscar Road will be closed at mile point 4.8 to allow deck patching on the Humphreys Creek Bridge This is along KY 1105/Oscar Road between Oscar and Barlow just north of the Sallie Crice Road intersection. Work at the site is expected to take about 3 days to complete, weather permitting. KY 1105 is expected to reopen to traffic late in the day on Wednesday, September 27.

Crittenden-Caldwell Counties

KYTC started the next phase of work along the new U.S. 641 construction corridor. With the completion of base cement stabilization on grade and drain work for the new U.S. 641, the next round of work will begin with placement of base material and base layers of asphalt for a two-lane driving surface. Placement of the base layers along the 6 miles of new highway in the fall is aimed at preventing erosion during the winter months. It will also allow paving of the driving surface and construction of connections to the existing roads to move ahead during the 2017 construction season. Starting on Thursday, drivers should also be alert for trucks hauling gravel and asphalt along existing U.S. 641 as well as along county roads that connect to the new U.S. 641 construction corridor. Initially, much of the truck traffic is expected to access the construction corridor via Crane Cemetery Road. Work on diversions for the construction of connecting points along existing U.S. 641/Marion-Princeton Road at mile point 4.05 in Caldwell County and mile point 5.7 in Crittenden County near the Coleman Road intersection will start as soon as utilities are moved out of the work zone. While the original design included construction of grade and drain for a four-lane highway running from Marion through southern Crittenden County to near Fredonia in Caldwell County, the new road is being completed as a two-lane "Super Two" highway as a cost-saving measure. The target completion date is July 1, 2018.

Fulton-Graves-Hickman Counties

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has started micro-surfacing along a section of the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway through Fulton, Hickman, and Graves Counties. Micro-surfacing along the Purchase Parkway runs from mile point 1.78 near the US 51 Interchange at Fulton extending northward to the 21-mile marker near Mayfield, a distance of 19.2 miles. Motorists should be alert for one lane traffic during daylight hours anytime weather allows.  Work zones will generally be set up in short sections.  Motorists should be alert for equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow. Micro-surfacing is a process that uses asphalt, fine aggregate, emulsion, and cement to seal the roadway driving surface and improve traction. It helps to extend the life of the asphalt driving surface at a cost below traditional paving. It is a specialized industrial-strength version of the asphalt sealing process commonly used to extend the life of driveways. MISSOURI PETROLEUM PRODUCTS COMPANY, LLC, is the prime contractor on this $2,988,596 highway improvement project.  The target completion date is Sept. 30, 2017

Graves County

KYTC crews planned to add a 13-foot width restriction for southbound traffic at the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway/US 45 Exit 21 interchange at Mayfield, starting on Friday, July 22. The work zone was from about the Purchase Parkway 17 mile marker to about the 23-mile marker and includes a 13-foot maximum load width restriction for southbound traffic from mile point 21.63 to mile point 21.25. This southbound load with restriction is along the Exit 21 ramp that carries through-traffic from Mayfield to southward along the Purchase Parkway toward Fulton and the Kentucky-Tennessee state line. The 13-foot maximum load width restriction is due to the addition of barrier walls to allow work to widen this ramp. The work zone includes a 55-mile-per-hour work zone speed limit with an enhanced enforcement presence. The ramp has a 45-mile-per-hour work zone speed limit. It has a target completion date of July 1, 2018.

Marshall-Livingston County

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict eastbound traffic to one lane along Interstate 24 at the 30 mile marker starting Tuesday, Sept. 19. Traffic will be restricted to allow a continuation of joint repairs on the bridge deck. Initially, all traffic will move to the left-hand or passing lane in this eastbound work zone.  After about three weeks the contractor plans a traffic shift to facilitate additional work at the site. This eastbound lane restriction is expected to be in place for about four to eight weeks. Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow. 

Marshall County

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to activate a new traffic signal at the Purchase Parkway/US 62/KY 1523 intersection in Calvert City on Monday, Sept. 25. The new traffic signal at the Purchase Parkway/US 62/KY 1523 intersection in Calvert City is expected to go into service sometime after 10 a.m., CDT, on Monday.  This new signal at Purchase Parkway milepoint 52.333 and US 62 milepoint 7.618 in Calvert City will replace an existing out-dated signal and controller. This is along a section of US 62 and the Purchase Pkwy being used as a detour for the closed westbound entry ramp from US 62 to I-24 at Calvert City Exit 27.  Traffic making a left turn from US 62 westbound to the Purchase Parkway southbound to access I-24 westbound has been backing up from time to time, particularly during peak travel periods.  The outdated existing signal did not have the capability to provide a protected left turn arrow for eastbound US 62 traffic heading south on the parkway. Among other things, the new signal will provide a protected left turn arrow for this movement.  It will include other features that will be important to traffic flow at this intersection in the future as work to upgrade the I-24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 Interchange for future Interstate 69 traffic continues. The new traffic signal is expected to go into service sometime between about 10 a.m., CDT, and about 2 p.m., on Monday. Motorists should use appropriate caution and be alert for changes in traffic flow the new signal may create at this busy intersection. Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow during the transition to the new signal on Monday.

A contractor is planning a traffic shift with a 14 ft. load width restriction for mainline traffic at the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway/KY 348 Exit 43 Interchange at Benton. The contractor plans to establish two-way traffic with a 14 ft load width restriction running on the southbound lanes of the Purchase Parkway to allow crews to work on the northbound side. Once the traffic shift is completed, the contractor plans to remove the concrete bases of the old toll booths along the median area and increasing clearance under the KY 348 Overpass within the interchange to comply with Federal Standards for Interstate 69. Motorists traveling the main line of the Purchase Parkway should be prepared to encounter slowing and merging traffic as they approach the Exit 43 Interchange at Benton. The Purchase Parkway/KY 348 Exit 43 Interchange is at Purchase Parkway mile point 42.555 and KY 348 mile point 7.439 at the west edge of Benton in Marshall County.  The new design is a modern diamond interchange that provides additional space for acceleration and deceleration of traffic entering and leaving the main line of the 4-lane parkway. Traffic has been running on base courses of asphalt during the winter months.  Once this work along the main line of the Parkway is completed, the contractor will finish out the new ramps. As a reminder, work zones along the Purchase Parkway at the I-24 Exit 25 Interchange at Calvert City and at the US 45-Bypass Exit 21 Interchange in Mayfield continue to be active.  Both of those projects, also aimed at allowing I-69 to be extended southward along the parkway in the future, have a July 1, 2018, target completion date.

KYTC closed a ramp in the Interstate 24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 Interchange in Marshall County starting Monday, July 24. The NORTHBOUND Purchase Parkway RAMP to I-24 EASTB97HD (Purchase Parkway Exit 52-A Ramp) will be closed to traffic.  Northbound parkway traffic seeking to travel east on I-24 will follow a marked detour to US 62 at Calvert City, then east on US 62 to connect with the I-24 eastbound lanes via the US 62 Calvert City Exit 27 interchange. This closure of the northbound Purchase Parkway ramp to Interstate 24 eastbound lanes is to allow earth work to finish out the connection for the new Interstate 69 northbound ramp to I-24 westbound and to US 62 in Calvert City. This closure of the northbound Purchase Parkway ramp to I-24 eastbound is expected to be in place for about 2 to 3 months. This construction corridor has a high level of ongoing construction activity.  Appropriate caution is required. The new I-24/I-69 interchange at Calvert City has a target completion date of July 1, 2018.

McCracken County

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has closed a section of KY 731/North 32nd Street in Paducah starting on Thursday, September 14. KY 731/North 32nd Street is closed to through traffic due to deteriorization of a drainage structure at mile point 1.37.  This closure is along KY 731/North 32nd Street between Lorine Lane and Spring Street. This closure will be in place until further notice while engineers determine if they can develop a repair plan for the structure or if it will have to be replaced.

A contractor will begin the milling of several streets in Paducah to prepare them for resurfacing.  Paving will commence after the milling with paving expected to begin Tuesday, Sept. 5. The work will take approximately three weeks to finish, weather-permitting. The streets and areas that will be affected are as follows: Highland Boulevard, Elmdale Road from Highland Boulevard to Interstate-24 overpass, Friedman Lane from Pines Road to US60/Hinkleville Drive, Circle Lake Drive, North 3rd Street from Harrison Street to Executive Boulevard, Executive Boulevard from the floodwall to North 4th Street, North 4th Street from Executive Boulevard to the floodwall, South 6th Street from Kentucky Avenue to Ohio Street, North 9th Street from Martin Luther King Junior Drive to Harrison Street, Harrison Street from North 9th Street to North 10th Street, Broadway from 9th Street to 13th Street, North 14th Street from Broadway to Northview Street (milling only), Northview Street from North 14th Street to North 10th Street (milling only). The North 14th Street and Northview Street projects will not be paved until 2018.  The milling will occur this year.  A water main replacement project by Paducah Water is the reason for the delay in paving these two streets. During the street resurfacing work, crews expect to keep one lane of traffic open.  However, for the safety of the crews, drivers are urged to find an alternate route.  Please use caution, and watch for the work crews and traffic control devices.  During this construction period, please avoid parking curbside on the affected streets that typically allow curbside parking. 

Trigg County

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has closed the south end of Andrew Calhoun Road in Trigg County as part of ongoing reconstruction of the US 68/KY 80 corridor. Andrew Calhoun Road in Trigg County provided a connection from Apostle James Road to existing US 68/KY 80 at mile point 13.234.  This closure of Andrew Calhoun Road to facilitate construction of the New US 68/KY 80 Corridor is permanent.  Residents along Andrew Calhoun Road and Apostile James Road will have access to the north via Airport Road from the KY 1489/Blue Springs Road end. While the need for this closure was discussed during a number of public meetings leading up to the US 68/KY 80 reconstruction project, the contractor had not informed KYTC engineers of the closing date. This closure of Andrew Calhoun Road at the New US 68/KY 80 construction corridor is permanent due to the incline required to reach the elevation of the new roadway at the connecting point. Rogers Group is the prime contractor on this $54 million highway improvement project in western Trigg County.  The project is about 25% complete.  It has a November 30, 2019, target completion date.

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet shifted traffic along the US 68/KY 80 construction corridor at the east edge of Cadiz in Trigg County starting early the week of Sunday, April 23. As part of the construction of two additional lanes along US 68/KY 80 around Cadiz, the contractor plans a traffic shift immediately west of the US 68 intersection with US 68-Business at the east edge of Cadiz. This intersection is at US 68 mile point 20.745 and US 68-Business mile point 4.519. As part of this traffic shift, two-way traffic will be established on the westbound lanes. Moving traffic off the eastbound lanes will allow dirt work for construction of new eastbound lanes at the site. Once traffic is shifted, traffic is expected to run in this temporary configuration for about 6 to 8 weeks until the required grade and drain work is completed. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow. The contractor also anticipates ramping up work on a new bridge for the eastbound lanes of US 68 over Little River at mile point 19.1.  The project started in May 2015 and is about 35 percent complete. The target completion date for this section is Nov. 30, 2019.

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to make the first concrete pour on the deck of the New 68/KY 80 Lake Barkley Bridge at Canton on Tuesday, June 6. The bridge is located at US 68 mile point 8.596 in Trigg County at the eastern entrance to Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area.  The new bridge is at Cumberland River navigational mile point 63.1, is just downstream from the existing US 68/KY 80 Lake Barkley Bridge at Canton. PCL Civil Construction of Denver is the prime contractor on the $128.3 million project to construct a new Lake Barkley Bridge. The new bridge is expected to be ready for 2-lane traffic sometime in the spring of 2018 with finish work on the new bridge continuing through 2018.
