Public meeting on new route for KY 30 in Owsley County draws 100 attendees
Posted: 9-Sep-2015 1:28PM CDT

From the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 10 (Aug. 28, 2015):

Public meeting on new route for KY 30 in Owsley County draws 100 attendees

 

JACKSON, KY – Approximately 100 people attended a public meeting Thursday, Aug. 27, to discuss the proposed relocation of KY 30 in Owsley and Jackson counties. The meeting was conducted by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Department of Highways District 10.

 

Attendees viewed a presentation by District 10 personnel and consultants. They provided comments on the project, asked several questions and viewed maps of the area showing the general scope of the proposed project. They were also provided comment forms on which they could express their opinions on the project.

 

A project is under development to relocate KY 30 between the US 421 intersection at Tyner in Jackson County and Travellers Rest in Owsley County. Two new-terrain corridors are under consideration. Both would begin at the intersection of US 421 and the new segment of KY 30 that was opened to traffic last year. One corridor would cross existing KY 30 near Elias in Jackson County and run to the northwest of the existing route to Travellers Rest. The other would cross existing KY 30 in Owsley County, approximately 1.5 miles from the Jackson County line, then run northwest of the existing route along a new alignment to Travellers Rest.

 

Both corridors will use the new bridge currently under construction at Travellers Rest, and will tie into the separate project to realign KY 30 between Travellers Rest and Levi. A contract is scheduled to be awarded for construction of that segment later this year.

 

The proposed road would have two 11-foot driving lanes. Truck climbing lanes on hills are under consideration. It would also feature paved shoulders, turning lanes at major intersections and a 30-foot clear zone adjacent to the highway.

 

When combined with the segment already completed in Jackson and Laurel counties and the portion in Owsley County to be awarded later this year, the new road will reduce travel time from the Beattyville/Booneville area to I-75 at London from around one hour to approximately 40 minutes. The entire corridor will provide improved safety and mobility for drivers who use it.

 

This project is included in the 2014-2020 Kentucky Highway Plan, approved last year by the General Assembly.

 

The project manager will receive written comments on the project through Sept. 15. Photographs and plans displayed at the public hearing may be viewed at the Department of Highways District 10 office, 473 Highway 15 South, Jackson, during the comment period. Comments on the project may be addressed to: Darren Back, P.E., project manager; Kentucky Department of Highways, P.O. Box 621, Jackson, KY 41339.

 

A similar meeting is scheduled for Jackson County on Tuesday, Sept. 1. It will be held at Tyner Elementary School.

Traffic Shift for New I-69/Pennyrile Pkwy Interchange in Hopkins County
Posted: 24-Jul-2015 9:10AM CDT

From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways:

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a traffic shift in the work zone for the New I-69 Interchange with the Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway in HOPKINS County on Friday, July 24, 2015.

Starting Friday morning, the contractor plans to change southbound traffic on the Pennyrile Parkway to the permanent traffic configuration.   That means southbound traffic on the Pennyrile will remain on the southbound lanes of I-69 along the main line, then exit left to continue south on the Pennyrile toward Hopkinsville or to take the exit ramp to the Western Kentucky Parkway eastbound lanes.

The movement for southbound traffic wishing to remain on the Pennyrile will require going over the new overpass to get back to the southbound Pennyrile or to access the existing cloverleaf ramp to the right for eastbound WK Parkway access.

Motorists should continue to use appropriate caution in this work zone and be prepared for lane restrictions to allow additional construction activities along the interchange.

The $29 million design-build contract to reconstruct the interchange to accommodate Interstate 69 was awarded to the Rogers Group, Inc., and QK4 Inc., with an expected completion date in October 2015.

Kentucky now has 55 miles of I-69.  The route follows I-24 for 17 miles from The Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway at Calvert City to Eddyville.  I-69 then runs for 38 miles along the former Wendell Ford-Western Kentucky Parkway from Eddyville to the Pennyrile Parkway near Madisonville.

The I-69 Interchange project in Hopkins County is among about 10 major projects totaling $260 million in new construction aimed at extending I-69 northward along the Pennyrile and southward along the Purchase Parkway.

From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 4: 

I-65 Safety Improvements Will Begin Next Week South Of Elizabethtown

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (May 25, 2012) – Median cable barriers are being installed along a two-lane section of Interstate 65 from the Hart/LaRue County line extending north approximately six miles into Hardin County (MP 74 – MP 80).  Once this work is completed, continuous cross over crash prevention measures will be in place from the current three-lane widening project in Barren County to just south of Elizabethtown.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet awarded George B. Stone Company, LLC the project contract on April 27th of this year in the amount of $368,440.  Ninety percent of the contract amount is federally funded.

Work is expected to begin on Tuesday, allowing Memorial Day Weekend travelers to pass through the area without lane closures.  During the project, northbound and southbound inside shoulders will be closed.  Left (inside) lane closures will also be in place for both directions while contract crews pour concrete for the project.  Lane closures will only be allowed from 8pm Sunday through 11am Thursday.  All lanes will be open for weekend traffic, however shoulders will remain closed and workers may still be present.  Northbound and Southbound delays will be possible Monday through Wednesday during peak afternoon traffic hours.  Traffic updates are available at 511.ky.gov or from your phone by dialing 511.

Motorists are reminded that speed limits are reduced from 70 to 55mph through the work zone and double fines are in effect.

The project agreement specifies that to avoid penalties, the contractor must complete the median cable barrier installation by June 26th, 2012.

From Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 1:

Governor Beshear announces plan to accelerate completion of new U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter

Could be carrying traffic more than a year ahead of schedule

 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Aug. 23, 2012) – Governor Steve Beshear today announced a plan to accelerate construction of the new U.S. 60 Tennessee River Bridge between Paducah and Ledbetter, enabling motorists to begin using it more than a year ahead of schedule.

 

“Travelers along U.S. 60, and especially the residents of McCracken and Livingston counties, are going to have a new ‘Ledbetter Bridge’ much earlier than expected,” Gov. Beshear said.

 

“We will cut a minimum of nine months off the estimated completion date of the project. But even better than that – we should be able to have two lanes of traffic on the new bridge by May 2013 – 14 months ahead of schedule,” Gov. Beshear said.

 

Under an agreement between the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and the contractor, Kay & Kay/Haydon Bridge Joint Venture, the bridge contract is being converted from “working days” to a specified completion date.

Posted: 30-Aug-2012 11:43PM CDT

From the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 10 (Aug. 27, 2012):

Start of month-long bridge repair project on KY 1571 in Estill County delayed until Tuesday, Sept. 4

JACKSON, KY – The contractor responsible for a bridge repair project KY 1571 in Estill County has delayed the start of the work until Tuesday, Sept. 4. Once underway, the repairs will result in one-lane traffic and delays for motorists using this highway.

The project was originally scheduled to begin on Friday, Aug. 24.

During the project, temporary signals will control traffic at the bridge crossing Millers Creek near KY 52. These temporary signals will be in place for approximately 30 days as work on a bridge deck overlay project proceeds. This will affect traffic between Irvine/Ravenna and Beattyville, as well as travel from Lee and Owsley counties to Richmond.

While the work is ongoing, the route will be restricted to vehicles less than 12 feet wide. Vehicles wider than 12 feet will need to find an alternate route around the project. Overwidth vehicles can use KY 52 across the mountain at Tipton Ridge as a detour route.

Drivers should slow down as they approach this construction zone, watch for stopped traffic and obey the temporary traffic signals. Motorists are asked to “Drive Smart” in this and all other work zones and be aware of workers, traffic control devices and construction equipment when traveling in this and other areas where projects are ongoing.
