Southbound travelers on Interstate 69 may need to change their route slightly while work is being done on ramps at Dawson Springs. The Transportation Cabinet says a contractor will close the southbound exit and entry ramps at the Kentucky 109 interchange starting today (Monday).
That's Exit 92. The ramps are being closed for about a week while connections for the new I-69/Kentucky 109 interchange configuration are built.
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.
Drivers could encounter road work near Mayfield over the next several months as crews widen a portion of U. S. 45 to four lanes. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd says the half-mile roadway creates a constant bottleneck problem for the 11,000 vehicles that use it each day.
