A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is continuing work on reconstruction of the KY 144/KY 2830 Intersection at the east edge of Owensboro, and now a width restriction has gone in place. As part of the project, the traffic shift will convert a 4-lane section of KY 144 that was formerly part of Old US 60 to 2-way traffic running along an eastbound temporary diversion. This will allow reconstruction of the westbound lanes of KY 144 and reconstruction of the intersection with KY 2830 which is another section of former US 60. As work has ramped up on this project, the contractor has added a 10 ft. maximum load width restriction to this work zone along KY 144. This work zone is along KY 144 between mile point 1.7 and 2.2 at the former US 60 intersection. This work zone includes a 35 mile per hour speed limit with double fines for speeding.
