FRANKFORT, Ky. (5/7/13) – City of Paducah Engineering-Public Works crews along with a contractor have initiated repairs to the right-of-way of Broadway between 28th and 31st Streets.
This work is to prepare the roadway for future milling and paving. The right-of-way work includes repairs to curbs and gutters, the reconstruction of various drainage structures, the installation of handicap ramps at intersections, and sidewalk repairs.
During the right-of-way repair work, crews expect to keep at least one and usually both lanes of Broadway open. However, please use caution, and watch for the work crews and traffic control devices.
Over the next few weeks, the right-of-way repairs will continue along Broadway to 21st Street. Later this year, Broadway between 21st and 31st Streets will be resurfaced.
This street rehabilitation project is part of the City of Paducah’s annual street improvement plan. Part of the funding is provided through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Municipal Aid Program (MAP). MAP funds are collected from the State gas tax and are allocated for maintenance, reconstruction, or construction of city streets. The City of Paducah maintains approximately 220 miles of streets. If you have a question, please call the Engineering-Public Works Department at 444-8511.
