Henderson Seal 01 300HENDERSON, Ky. (9/10/19) —  (9/10/19) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and city of Henderson will host a public information meeting Monday to address planned improvements to Watson Lane and Green River Road.

The meeting is planned for 5-7 p.m. at Bend Gate Elementary School. City officials reported the Watson Lane project runs from Sunset Lane to Green River Road.
The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility for motorists and pedestrians along the Watson Lane corridor with the project limits, including improved capacity and safety at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Watson Lane.

The existing two-lane road with no shoulders does not meet current standards for traffic volumes and the intersection experiences significant delays during peak travel time periods, officials said.

Proposed improvements include:

• Widening to provide consistent 11-foot lanes
• Construction of curb and gutter on both sides of the road
• Construction of a 6-foot sidewalk along one side of the road
• Construction of a stormwater collection system and improvements to existing stormwater collection features
• Alignment improvements including sight distance
• Reconstruction of existing entrances
• mprovements to the U.S. 41-Watson Lane intersection

Construction on the three-phase project is projected to begin in mid-to-late 2021, Henderson officials said. The Green River Road portion of the half-mile project will extend sidewalks from Bend Gate Drive to near Osage Drive, tying into the existing sidewalk at that location. The purpose is to improve safety and mobility for pedestrians in this primarily residential neighborhood. Construction could begin as early as Spring 2020.
