kentucky trans yellow 300WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (8/24/14) ― Base repairs along U.S. 41- Alternate in Webster County that were expected to start on Aug. 15 had to be delayed.

When the contractor starting excavations he found much of this section has an old concrete base that will have to be removed at the sites in need of repair.

After some additional planning that work is now expected to move forward starting Tuesday, Aug. 26.



The work zone along U.S. 41-Alternate runs from the intersection with Vanderburg-Lisman Road and Lisman-Mount Myra Road at mile point 6.880 and extends northward through Dixon to mile point 10.080 near the intersection with Marion Towne Road.



This project includes work along Kentucky 2087 in Dixon. The work zone along Kentucky 2087/Clayton Avenue runs from the Kentucky 132 intersection at mile point 0.0 and extends northward to mile point 0.534 at the U.S. 41-A intersection.



The contractor will start with intermittent lane restrictions for base repairs over about a week or two. Traffic will then be allowed to run on the repaired areas for about a week to allow them to settle. The contractor will then return for asphalt paving along these sections of U.S. 41-Alternate and Kentucky 2087.

Road Builders is the prime contractor on this $559,910 highway improvement project. The work should be completed in 3 to 4 weeks, weather permitting.
