Traffic will be down to one lane on the bridge with a temporary traffic signal in place. Travel lanes will be down to 11’ and the project is expected to take about a month to complete. The temporary signals will remain in place for the duration of the project.

The project is 7.5 miles in length and begins at KY 1243 extending east to KY 70. Flaggers will be present to maintain traffic through the work zone.
· Construction of the Tompkinsville Bypass will continue. Folks in the community will notice signs placed in advance of the construction zones. Since it is a new route, most of the construction will take place away from traffic; however, as construction progresses, some traffic impacts will occur particularly at intersections. Notice will be given as these impacts happen throughout the course of the project.
· KY 1049 from Intersection of KY 163 to intersection of KY 1520- Crews will be present to continue work on resurfacing project. Paving operations are complete but flaggers could still be present as final touches are put on the project. Motorist should use caution while traveling in the area.

Traffic has been re-routed to the new alignment. Motorists should be prepared for occasional delays due to flagging as earthwork operations resume. Traffic will remain on the new alignment for the remainder of the project. However motorists should be aware that the speed limit will remain lowered through the construction zone.
· US 31-W Nashville Road- Roadway construction activities will continue between Lowes and I-65 with crews and flaggers present. Paving operations are complete but crews will still be present putting the final touches on the project. The speed limit through the project remains at 45 mph.

The KY 884 Three Springs Road bridge over the Natcher Parkway will be down to one lane controlled by a temporary traffic signal beginning Monday, July 2 for several weeks.
This project is near a heavy residential area and motorists need to plan for traffic delays. Folks should allow extra travel time every day until the project is complete.
The lane closure is necessary so crews can mill and replace the bridge deck surface.
