A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has plans to continue daytime closures along KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road in Daviess County Monday through Friday of this week. KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road will be closed during daylight hours from Carter Road at mile point 4.743 to Keller Road at mile point 5.762, today through Friday, to allow several cross drains to be replaced. This section of KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road will be closed from approximately 7am to approximately 4pm each day this week. The roadway will be reopened during overnight hours. However, motorists should keep in mind that this is an active work zone and caution is required. 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.
