Kentucky

Crittenden-Caldwell Counties

KYTC plans to start the next phase of work along the new U.S. 641 construction corridor on Thursday, Oct. 20. 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 Crayne 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.

Calloway County

A KYTC contractor plans to close Carlton Road starting on Monday, January 23. Carlton Road (CR 1411) will be closed to allow construction of a new bridge over the West Fork of Rockhouse Creek. This is along Carlton Rd. about 1/10th of a mile west of Collins Rd. in Calloway County. The target completion date is July 1, 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 County

A KYTC contractor plans to close the westbound entry ramp at the Interstate 24/US 62 Exit 27 Calvert City Interchange starting on Wednesday, Dec. 21. Work to set up traffic control for the closure of the westbound entry ramp from US 62 to Interstate 24 at Calvert City and establish a detour is expected to start at about 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The ramp closure and detour are to improve traffic flow and enhance safety at the entry to the traffic diversion in the I-24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 Interchange work zone. Once the westbound entry ramp from US 62 to I-24 at Exit 27 is closed, traffic seeking to make that connection will be detoured via US 62 westbound to the Purchase Parkway, then southbound where drivers and truckers can use the I-24 Exit 25 westbound entry ramp to enter main line traffic on I-24. This puts the merge point for westbound traffic at the west edge of the work zone beyond the traffic diversion and work zone restrictions. This is expected to provide a safer transition for merging traffic. This detour for the US 62 Exit 27 westbound entry ramp to I-24 is expected to be in place for about a year. This work zone is along I-24 in Marshall County between the 25 and 27-mile marker and along the Purchase Parkway between the 49 and 52-mile marker at the I-24 Exit 25 Interchange. Reconstruction of the interchange is aimed at allowing I-69 to be extended southward along the parkway in the future. This work zone includes a 55 mile per hour speed limit with an enhanced enforcement presence and double fines for citations. Some of the crossovers and more restricted sections of the parkway have a 45 mile per hour work zone speed limit for safety. As a reminder, both eastbound and westbound I-24 traffic is running on a diversion through this work zone between I-24 Exit 25 and Exit 27. 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.

KYTC plans to open the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway/KY 348 Exit 43 Interchange at Benton, Ky. They said engineers are optimistic the new interchange in Marshall County can be open with traffic running on base courses of asphalt sometime late on Friday, Dec. 16. Engineers anticipate providing a 24-hour advance notice when the new ramps are ready for traffic. Drivers should be prepared to encounter changes in traffic flow the new ramps will create at this busy interchange. The Purchase Parkway/KY 348 Exit 43 Interchange is at Purchase Parkway mile point 42.555 and KY 348/Symsonia Highway/5th Street mile point 7.439 at the west edge of Benton in Marshall Co. Weather permitting, traffic is expected to move to the new ramps sometime late on Friday. The contractor plans to allow traffic to run on base courses of asphalt through the winter months. The contractor will return in the spring to place a final driving surface along the ramps and the parkway lanes within the project area. 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 these 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.

McCracken County

Broadway in Paducah will be closed to all through traffic from North 16th Street to North 14th Street for the construction of a 24-inch water main on Broadway. This is part of a project to put a new 24-inch ductile iron water main from Kentucky Avenue to the existing treatment plant on 8th Street. It began on Monday, Aug. 15 and is expected to continue through spring 2017. This project will enhance the capacity and reliability of the Paducah Public Works entire distribution system. Existing traffic patterns will be affected during excavation and restoration of the road along the alignment.
