Paving, rehabilitation projects will create safer roads

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 28, 2012) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has awarded nearly $41 million in contracts for projects to repave, rehabilitate and repair roads across the Commonwealth. Most are for state routes, but they include repairs for interstate highways in Jefferson, Carroll, Gallatin and Livingston counties.

“Maintenance and repair of roadways is a major part of our cabinet’s business,” Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said. “It’s an essential part of our mission to provide a safe, modern transportation system.”

The largest single project in the cabinet’s September letting was $11,661,254 for resurfacing and the installation of guardrails on a roughly 15-mile section of Interstate 71 in Gallatin and Carroll counties. The project area, west to east, is from the Carroll-Trimble county line near the 39 mile marker to the beginning of the three-lane section near the 56.7 mile marker in Gallatin County. Ohio Valley Asphalt LLC was awarded the contract. The project is to be completed by June 30, 2013.

An $8,160,000 project in Jefferson County will repair and smooth pavement on a two-mile stretch on the Watterson Expressway (I-264) from mile point 18.41 to mile point 20.7. The project, which is scheduled to be completed by July 31, 2013, was awarded to Hall Contracting of Kentucky Inc.
