traffic detour 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (9/2/19) — A contractor for Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a seven-day closure of East 18th Street at the intersection of Kentucky 107/East Virginia Street in Hopkinsville starting Tuesday.

East 18th Street will be closed at the intersection of Kentucky 107/East Virginia Street to allow realignment of the intersection to improve safety, KYTC Spokesman Keith Todd reported. The one-block section of East 18th Street serves as the one-way connector between the in-bound and out-bound one-way sections of Kentucky 107/South Virginia Street and Kentucky 695/South Main Street.

This project is part of a Highway Safety Improvement Program that includes safety-related work at a number of intersections. Message boards will direct traffic around this closure via side streets, Todd said. Drivers should be prepared for changes in traffic flow this project may bring to this intersection, when the road reopens.

KMAC Contractors LLC of Madisonville is the prime contractor on this $92,599 highway improvement project. The road at this site is expected to be closed for about a week, weather permitting. The target completion date for all work at the site is Sept. 30.
