Hopkins County Traffic Advisory

road closed orange 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (8/22/14) — Kentucky 502 in Hopkins County is expected to remain closed until late September for ongoing construction of a new bridge over Clear Creek.

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet closed Kentucky 502/Coiltown Road at mile point 3.246 around April 1 to allow replacement of the Clear Creek Bridge. This closure is along Kentucky 502 is between High Glory Road and John Lansden Road.

As work started at the site wet weather set in creating delays. Due to extended periods of high water, the contractor was forced to take additional time to construct coffer dams to maintain worker safety and allow concrete to be poured for piers on the new structure. Workers have also been plagued by an active snake population at the work site.

Construction of the new Clear Creek Bridge was expected to be complete around August 1. Opening of the new bridge is now expected in mid to late September, weather permitting.

Scott & Murphy, Inc. of Bowling Green is the prime contractor on this $1,496,471 bridge replacement project.
