ky transcab shield 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (1/22/18) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet proposes to put “safety first” in its 2018 recommended highway plan that was submitted recently to the Kentucky General Assembly.

Over the next six years, the $1 billion statewide plan includes bridge repairs and paving in Hopkins County.

Projects making the list include repair of Otter Creek bridge along Kentucky 260 this year at a cost of $1 million, Clear Creek and Sugar Creek bridges on Kentucky 70 in two phases (2019-20) totaling $3 million in addition to the Kentucky 138 bridge over Pond River and the Kentucky 109 bridge over Tradewater River at $500,000.

KYTC proposes to spend $12.38 million to widen North Main Street (2020-24), from Hospital Drive to Kentucky 281 in Madisonville, $1.87 million to pave between mile markers 32.8 to 34.2 along all lanes of Pennyrile Parkway and Interstate 69 between mile marker 114-118 proposed to cost $3.19 million.

Other projects in the plan include more paving on I-69 totaling nearly $20 million. KYTC anticipates that endeavor will begin in 2021.
