The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is awarding nine counties across the region almost $3 million for asphalt rehabilitation projects. The funding progresses a number of road paving projects, including a section of U.S. 45 in Fulton County and U.S. 62 in Hopkins County. In all, nearly 60 asphalt rehab contracts were awarded throughout the state in April, totaling more than $27 million.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has awarded $13.4 million for improvements to Interstate 24 in McCracken County. The project to replace asphalt pavement between Exits 3 and 16 begins in March. Grand Rivers-based Jim Smith Contracting Company will head up the project. It’s slated for completion by the end of September next year.
