ramp closed2

OWENSBORO, Ky. (8/21/13) – A contractor working on the Audubon Parkway Rehabilitation Project plans to close all ramps from US 60 to the Audubon Parkway westbound lanes at Owensboro starting at 10 p.m. tonight.

This closure of all ramps from US 60/Wendell Ford Expressway to the Audubon will last for approximately 24 hours to allow repairs to ramp connecting points with US 60 and the main lanes of the Audubon Parkway.

There will be a marked detour via KY 56 and KY 1554 during this ramp closure. After 24 hours one of the ramps will reopen to allow access from US 60 to the Audubon.

After the 24 hour closure from 10 p.m., Wednesday to 10 p.m., Thursday, the westbound US 60 on-ramp will open to allow access to the Audubon. However, the eastbound US 60 on-ramp will remain closed for nine days so that the contractor can finish repairs on this ramp. There will be a marked detour.

The contractor will also have to rework several sections of newly poured concrete along the main line of the Audubon Parkway after a motorists drove around traffic barricades and barrels and plowed through the work area on Monday afternoon. The vehicle left tracks in the new concrete that could not be removed before the concrete set up. Those sections will have to be ripped out and replaced. Police have indicated the motorists will be facing a number of charges, highway department officials said.
