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.

Christian County, KY

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is in the final phases of median cable barrier installation along Interstate 24 in Christian County between the U.S. 41-Alernate Hopkinsville/Ft. Campbell Interchange at Exit 86 and the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line. The cables are up. However, finish work is continuing. This week the contractor plans to place gravel along the median shoulder to connect the shoulder to the concrete base of the cable barrier. This activity will require a moving lane restriction along the work zone. The contractor will then come back to chip and seal the area along the media shoulder. This phase will require all traffic to be moved to the right-hand or driving lane in the work zone. Motorists should use extra caution due to trucks moving into and out of the work site.

Heartland road projects for 1019 - KCTV5

In Christian County, this work zone begins near the U.S. 41-Alternate Exit 86 interchange at mile point 85.5 and extends to the Kentucky/Tennessee line at mile point 93.4. This section is a continuation of a nearly 16-mile cable barrier installation project in Christian County completed in July of this year. Placement of median cable barriers is determined by traffic volume and crash data. Kentucky has more than 240 miles of barrier installed or in the process of installation — most of it along interstates and highways in urban areas.

Completion is expected in mid-October 2014.

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.

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. Drivers 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
