ky transcab shield 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (4/22/13) – More than $27 million in asphalt rehabilitation projects have been awarded by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet as the spring construction season gets underway.

The first asphalt projects of the season are distributed over 45 counties.

“Maintaining our roadways is one of the most important responsibilities of the Transportation Cabinet,” Kentucky Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said. “Well-maintained roads are safer for motorists. They’re also important for economic development and community growth.”

The awarded projects span the Commonwealth, from Ballard County in the west to Boyd County in the east. They range in cost from $1.9 million for improvement of Dixie Highway (U.S. 31W) in Hardin County to $41,000 for improvement of Bloomfield Road (KY 55) in Spencer County.

In all, nearly 60 asphalt rehab contracts were awarded in April with more to be awarded this year.

In Daviess County, two contracts were awarded:

  • 5-mile section of KY 56/Beech Grove-West Louisville Road from the McLean County line to KY 815. Yager Materials LLC was awarded the contract for $554,912. Completion date: Nov. 15, 2013.
  • Two sections of roadway including a 0.6-mile section of KY 2117 (Southeastern Parkway) from U.S. 231 to KY 298 and a 0.25-mile section of KY 2245 (East 5th Street) from KY 2155 to KY 2831. Yager Materials LLC was awarded the contract for $181,235. Completion date: Nov. 15, 2013.
