A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has plans to close a section of KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road in Daviess County on Friday, March 4. KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road will be closed at between mile point 1.562 and mile point 3.773 on Friday to allow several cross drains to be replaced. This is along KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road between Burns Road and KY 554. The roadway at this site is expected to close at approximately 8 a.m., CST, Friday, after the morning school bus run. It is expected to reopen to through traffic around 4:00 p.m. There will be no marked detour. This is part of a larger ongoing safety project along KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road from the KY 1207 intersection at mile point 0.0 extending northeastward to the intersection with Keller Road at mile point 5.760.
This section of KY 2127 was identified as part of Kentucky’s Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) as having an above average number of traffic crashes. The KYTC safety staff developed plans for a number of improvements aimed at reducing the crash rate. The plan includes widening shoulders, replacing cross drains, placing channel lining in areas where ditches have eroded and spot improvements at 3 curves. It also includes new signage. The contractor has been working as weather permits with the goal of placing new pavement along this section in the spring. Hazex Construction Company, Inc, of Henderson is the prime contractor on this $1,342,635 highway improvement project. The target completion date is June 30, 2016.
