The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet sent out a traffic advisory Monday night that warned of delays along Ft. Campbell Blvd. The full alert is below:
A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to halt traffic for brief periods along US 41-Alernate/Fort Campbell Boulevard near Lovers Lane in Hopkinsville starting Wednesday, December 3, 2014.
All traffic on US 41-Alternate will be halted near the Lovers Lane Intersection from time to time to allow blasting on the Lovers Lane improvement project. The contractor will be using explosives to loosen rock to allow trenching for a water lane adjacent to the new section of roadway.
Flaggers will stop traffic briefly about 1/4th mile on each side of the intersection when explosive charges are being detonated. These occasional traffic stoppages are expected to continue during daylight hours for approximately one week.
Motorists may avoid these brief closures on US 41-A/Fort Campbell Boulevard by traveling the Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway between Interstate 24 and the US 68 Hopkinsville Bypass.
The Lovers Lane (CR-1652) Reconstruction Project is designed to improve connections between US 41-Alternate and the Breathitt Pennyrile Parkway while providing improved access to the Hopkinsville Convention Center entrance.
Westate Construction of Hopkinsville is the prime contractor on the $1,993,975 transportation improvement project. Completion is expected in mid-August, 2015.
