Audubon Parkway Eastbound Lanes Between Owensboro and Sorgho Closed for Construction

lane closures green 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (4/12/13) – A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close the Audubon Parkway eastbound lanes from the KY 1554 Exit 18 at Sorgho to the Audubon Parkway/US 60 Interchange at Owensboro starting on Monday, April 15.

This closure of Audubon Parkway eastbound lanes is to allow extensive rehab work on the Audubon Parkway/US 60 Interchange Exit 24 eastbound ramps A and C to US 60. The Audubon Parkway eastbound lanes will be closed starting at approximately 8 a.m. on Monday, April 15.

This section of the eastbound Audubon Parkway and eastbound ramps to US 60 are expected to remain closed until about May 4. There will be a marked detour via KY 1554 at Audubon Parkway Exit 18. The contractor has 20 working days to complete work on the eastbound ramps or face substantial penalties.

This closure of eastbound ramps to US 60 is to allow reconstruction of the ramps as part of a larger general rehab project along the Audubon from mile point 16.5 near the Green River Bridge at the Daviess-Henderson County Line to the Audubon Parkway/US 60 Interchange in Owensboro.

All ramps from US 60 to the Audubon Parkway westbound will remain open at this time.

Starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 19, westbound ramps B and D connecting US 60 to the Audubon westbound lanes will also be closed for rehab work. The westbound Exit 24 Audubon Parkway entry ramps will be closed through the weekend and reopen to traffic by 6:00 a.m. on Monday, April 22.

Once all of the ramp work is completed on the Audubon/US 60 Exit 24 Interchange on May 4, the contractor will start work on the main line of the Audubon from the 16 mile marker to the 24 mile marker. There will be a crossover at Audubon Parkway mile point 14.5 and at mile point 24 so two-lane traffic can be established on the eastbound lanes to allow the contractor to work along the westbound lanes.

Timely updates on traffic shifts and work zone configurations will be provided as the rehab work progresses in coming weeks.

Chester Bross Construction Company is the prime contractor on this $6.1 million highway improvement project. The estimated completion date is Sept. 1.
