ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (July 1, 2010) — Construction of the KY 933 extension, in Meade County, will require the closure of Christian Church Road beginning Tuesday, July 6.


The closure will be set up between Bud Wilson Road and Berryman Road and will be effective through Aug. 1. Motorists can detour to the east via Weldon Road and KY 1638. To the west, motorists can detour to KY 448.


The portion of KY 933 that has been closed since June 6 will reopen July 6.


“This project continues to progress,” Patty Dunaway, chief engineer for the Elizabethtown Highway District, said. “We appreciate the public’s cooperation as the Transportation Cabinet works to improve the highway network in Meade County.”


Construction on the $4.4 million new route and realignment of KY 933 began in March. The 2.4-mile project includes a new stretch that will tie the existing KY 933 from Buttermilk Falls Road southwest to KY 448 near Berryman Road. The project is designed to ease truck access to area industrial sites, including Buttermilk Falls Industrial Park. The road would also provide access to a prospective new river port.


Motorists are asked to use appropriate caution near the work zone.
