A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has closed a section of KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road in Daviess County today. KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road will be closed at mile point 1.2 to allow a cross drain to be replaced. This is along KY 2127/Todd Bridge Road between KY 554 and Burns Road. The roadway at this site closed around 8am after the morning school bus run. It is expected to reopen to through traffic sometime Monday evening. 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 will be working through the winter months 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.
