badget bridge 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (4/17/13) – To facilitate construction of a new railroad overpass connector between Brown Badgett Loop (CR 1092) and KY 1069/Stagecoach Road in Hopkins County, Brown Badgett Loop will be closed at the work site starting Friday, April 19, 2013.
 
Local access for property owners will be maintained from each end of Brown Badgett Loop.
 
When completed, the new bridge will serve as an extra entrance point to Madisonville North Hopkins High School from KY 1069/Stagecoach Road. It replaces a wooden structure that was closed to traffic in October 2007.
 
The new concrete bridge will be able to handle school bus traffic, which was unable cross the old structure.
 
Alignment of the new structure will pull off of Stagecoach Road north of the existing bridge, but crosses the railroad tracks at an angle at the existing bridge site and ties into Brown Badgett Loop south of the current bridge location. It will add additional capacity for vehicles waiting to access Stagecoach Road from the high school.
 
The work zone should have little impact on traffic along KY 1069/Stagecoach Road until the new bridge is ready to be tied into the existing roadway.

Jim Smith Contracting Company, LLC, is the prime contractor on the $1.8 million project. The anticipated completion date is Oct. 31, 2013.
