Audubon Parkway Ramps to be Closed This Weekend

trafficalert green 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (4/19/13) – A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to close the US 60 ramps to the westbound lanes of the Audubon Parkway at Owensboro, KY, starting at 7:00 p.m. tonight.

The closure of U.S. 60 ramps to the Audubon Parkway westbound is to allow reconstruction of the ramps. Starting promptly at 7:00 p.m. tonight, westbound ramps B and D connecting U.S. 60 to the Audubon will be closed through the weekend. The Westbound ramps will reopen to traffic by 6:00 a.m. on Monday, April 22nd.

A marked detour for traffic from U.S. 60 to the eastbound Audubon will be provided via US 60, Ky. Hwy. 81, Ky. Hwy. 56 and Ky. Hwy. 1554 to Exit 18 at Sorgho.

All eastbound lanes on the Audubon Parkway remain closed for reconstruction from the Ky. 1554 Exit 18 at Sorgho to the Audubon Parkway/US 60 Interchange at Owensboro.

This section of the eastbound Audubon Parkway and eastbound ramps to US 60 are expected to remain closed until about May 4. There is a marked detour for eastbound traffic via Ky. Hwy. 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 Audubon ramps to and from U.S. 60 at Owensboro 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.

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 for the rehab work along the Audubon is September 1.
