Work Zones Wrapping Up in Paducah, More Planned
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A contractor is winding down work zone lane restrictions for safety enhancements that started earlier this month at two Paducah intersections.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says work zones should be coming down Wednesday afternoon at the U.S. 60 intersection with KY 731/North 32 Street & Downs Drive in Paducah, and at the U.S. 45-Business/Kentucky Avenue intersection with U.S. 60-Business/South 4th Street- in Paducah.

Drivers are advised to watch for an electrical crew working on traffic signal upgrades at these intersections in coming weeks. While much of that work can be completed along right-of-way without disrupting traffic, some temporary lane restrictions may be necessary during daylight hours.

Weather permitting, the contractor plans to ramp up work at the KY 58/KY 131 intersection east of Mayfield in Graves County starting on Monday. Safety upgrades at this intersection include LED enhanced signage, thermal rumble strips, pavement markings, and construction of a mountable median with curb and gutter to better define nearby business entrances.   

Additional intersections scheduled for safety enhancements as part of this project later in the 2020 construction season include:

-U.S. 60/Jackson Street at South 27th St- Paducah

-New signage and pavement marking upgrades (U.S. 60 at 13.488mm)

-U.S. 60 at Allen Lane and County Park Road- Paducah

Traffic signal system upgrades including dual red signal heads with reflective backplates, turn lane radar vehicle detection, new pavement markings, signage upgrade, and curb/gutter with ADA compliant sidewalk ramps.
