lane restriction 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (8/24/14) ― A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to place a lane and load width restriction on Interstate 69/Wendell Ford-Western Kentucky Parkway Overpass at the Interchange with the Pennyrile Parkway in Hopkins County starting Monday, Aug. 25.
 
This lane and load width restriction is to allow bridge deck overlay work on the overpass at I-69 mile point 106.41 and Western Kentucky Parkway mile point 38.326 in Hopkins County.
 
Traffic at the site will be restricted to one lane in each direction with a maximum 15 ft. load width.
 
A 55 mile per hour work zone speed limit will be in place with an enhanced enforcement presence.  Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are on the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow.
 
Motorists should be alert for slowing and merging traffic as they approach this work zone.  The work zone lane and load width restriction is expected to be in place until mid-September.
 
Timely traffic advisories for the 11 counties of KYTC Highway District 2 are available by going to www.facebook.com/kytcdistrict2.  You do not have to be a Facebook member to access this page.
