A contractor plans to restrict traffic to one lane on a section of KY 181 near the Kentucky National Guard Wendell H. Ford Regional Training Center in MUHLENBERG County starting Monday, July 27, 2015.
This work zone lane restriction with alternating traffic flow controlled by an automated signal at KY 181 mile point 16.5 is just north of the Western Kentucky Parkway Exit 53 Interchange. This work zone is to allow repairs to the Star-Queen Road Overpass that was struck by a truck that exceed the load height restriction. Star-Queen Road carries internal traffic for the Kentucky National Guard Wendell Ford Regional Training Center.
Motorists should be alert for slowing and stopped traffic as they approach this work zone along KY 181. Delays at this site should be minimal.
Judy Harp Contracting is the prime contractor on the project. Repairs to the bridge beams are expected to take about 3 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
