Test Blasting Scheduled for US 641 Corridor

 

kentucky trans yellow 300CRITTENDEN COUNTY, KY (1/6/12) – A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has scheduled test blasting as part of construction on the New US 641 Corridor in Crittenden County starting possibly as early as Wednesday, January 11, 2012
 
The preliminary test blasting schedule is as follows:
• At the earliest, the contractor plans a test shot on Wednesday, January 11, 2012
• Production blasting is expected to begin 7 to 10 days after the test shot has been performed
• Once production blasting has started, blasting will continue about every one to two days
 
There are several factors that could affect when the test blasting could be initiated, but the January 11th date will be the earliest it could start.
 
Once production blasting starts later in the month, the contractor plans to do all blasting at approximately noon on the days that it will be performed. Essentially, all of the blasting on the project will be isolated to the area between Crayne Cemetery Road and Lloyd Road southeast of the Crayne community. An audible safety warning signal will provide an advance notice near the blasting site.
 
The blasting site will be in the knobs area east of existing US 641 between mile point 2.565 and mile point 3.188.
 
The contractor and transportation engineers will coordinate efforts to provide updated information to the public as the test shot schedule firms up over the next several days. Once the test blast is executed, production blasting is expected to commence approximately one week from that day
 
Road Builders and Parkway Construction of Greenville is the Prime contractor on this $18.6 million highway improvement project to build a 4-lane section between Marion and Fredonia.
