A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane along a section of the Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway in HOPKINS County starting TODAY.
Lane restrictions are going up for asphalt pavement and rehabilitation work along the Pennyrile Parkway from mile point 37.07 to mile point 42.418 in Hopkins County. This work zone runs from the Mortons Gap Interchange at Exit 37 to about the KY 70 Madisonville Interchange at Exit 42. This rehab project includes repairs to a land slip at the Exit 42 Interchange.
Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.
Motorists should be alert for merging and slowing traffic as they approach this work zone. At this time, all traffic is moved to the right-hand or driving lane in this work zone. Traffic shifts will be required from time to time to facilitate the work.
Road Builders, LLC, is the prime contractor on this $2,663,988 highway improvement project. The anticipated completion date is June 30, 2014.
