ky trans 300HENDERSON, Ky. (3/20/14) — A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane along a section of KY 351/Second Street/Zion Road near the US 41 Interchange at Henderson starting 5 p.m. Friday, March 21, 2014.

This lane restriction for westbound traffic heading into Henderson from the Zion area is to allow major concrete replacement and reconstruction along this section.  

The contractor will be working around the clock in this area from 5:00 p.m., CDT, Friday until 5:00 a.m. Monday, March 24th, to avoid disrupting traffic during busy weekday travel periods. This is the first of several weekends of major reconstruction planned along KY 351 near the US 41 Interchange.

This weekend the contractor will be working along KY 351 /Zion Road/Second Street from mile point 2.776 at Deep Woods Drive to about mile point 1.210 near the KY 2084 Connector at the entrance to the Henderson County Board of Education Office and Palmer’s Market.

All traffic heading west into Henderson will be moved to the left-hand or passing lane in this work zone to allow work along right-hand or driving lane. There should be little or no impact on traffic heading eastward away from Henderson this weekend.

Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

Work along this section of KY 351/Zion Road/Second Street will continue every weekend when weather allows, and during the week whenever school is not in session. Motorists should be alert for changing traffic configurations in this work zone as the project progresses. We will attempt to provide timely updates.

About 18,000 vehicles travel this section of KY 351 near the US 41 Interchange in an average day.

Hall Construction is the prime contractor on this $6.2 million highway improvement project. The anticipated completion date is Aug. 1, 2014.
