Heartland road projects for 6/23

(Source: Raycom Media) (Source: Raycom Media)
(KFVS) -

Here is a list of some road projects from around the Heartland. Drivers are reminded to always slow down and use caution while driving through work zones.

Missouri

Southeast MO

MoDOT crews will work to re-stripe various state routes throughout southeast MO, with the focus currently on minor routes. In late May, crews will shift their attention to striping major routes (Interstate 55, Route 60 and Route 67) and state routes in cities and towns. Drivers should be prepared to slow down when coming up behind a slow-moving striping caravan. Striping in cities and towns will be completed overnight to help minimize the impact to travelers. The striping trucks will move between 8 and 12 mph when work is underway.

  • On multi-lane highways, be prepared to slow down and pull around the striping train by merging carefully into the open lane. Avoid pulling in among the trucks in the work train to keep paint from getting onto your vehicle and to avoid damaging the newly painted stripe.
  • On two-lane highways, stay behind the last truck in the striping train, placed well behind the striping truck. This will give the new paint the few minutes it needs to dry. If traffic backs up behind the striping train, MoDOT crews will pull out of the way where it is safe to do so and let congestion clear.
  • If you drive through wet paint, which is water-based, clean your car as quickly as possible with a high-powered water hose, such as those used in car washes.

Williamson County

The closure of West Grand Avenue in Carterville will begin on Monday, May 8. This is for construction between Greenbriar Road and Lions Driver. The two detour routes include Route 13 and Sycamore Road. The City of Carterville and Carterville Unit 5 School District strongly encourage parents and students leaving the elementary or high school to use the Cambria Road to Sycamore Road detour route to travel east when leaving either campus. The route is recommended because of the uncontrolled left turn across multiple lanes at Cambria Road and Route 13. Construction is expected to be complete in August 2017.

Due to utility conflicts and weather concerns, IDOT says the Old Illinois 13 and Wolf Creek Road road closure will be delayed until June 10, weather permitting. The closure is necessary to complete reconstruction of the intersection as well as improvements to Wolf Creek Rd. The limits of this closure will be a quarter of a mile east and west of the Wolf Creek intersection with Old Illinois 13. Old Illinois 13 traffic should use alternate routes for the duration of the closure. Local traffic will be allowed access to north Wolf Creek Road via the new frontage road system, south of Illinois 13. South Wolf Creek Road will remain accessible from routes that are south of the intersection. Drivers should find an alternate route.

Kentucky

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has a traffic stripe painting crew making rounds in Kentucky’s 12 westernmost counties starting the week of June 19. The traffic stripe painting crew will initially ramp up work on 2-lane highways in Calloway, Marshall, and Trigg counties. Motorists should be alert for a paint truck and several support vehicles. The caravan will be moving at a brisk clip, but some traffic backups are possible. While the reflective paint used for applying traffic stripes to pavement is fast-drying, motorists should avoid driving through freshly sprayed paint. Patience and caution are required whenever you encounter a paint caravan.  Remember, these crews are applying highway markings designed to help keep you safe. KYTC personnel will attempt to provide timely notice when the paint crew moves to other counties.

Calloway County

A KYTC contractor plans to close Carlton Road starting on Monday, January 23. Carlton Road (CR 1411) will be closed to allow construction of a new bridge over the West Fork of Rock house Creek. This is along Carlton Rd. about 1/10th of a mile west of Collins Rd. in Calloway County. The target completion date is July 1, 2017.

Crittenden County

KYTC plans to mill and pave along existing US 641 starting on Saturday, June 3. This project runs along US 641 from the Crittenden-Caldwell County line at mile point 0.0 and extending northward to the US 60 intersection in Marion at mile point 7.494. Initial prep work is expected to start on Saturday morning, June 3, with milling starting on Monday, June 5. The existing pavement will be milled along the entire project area. Crews will skip a small section of existing US 641 near the intersection with Coleman Road where a culvert project and a connection with the new US 641 is under construction. Pavement along the existing US 641 in this area will be replaced once connections to the new roadway are finished in mid-2018. This section of US 641 includes the KY 70 intersection at Mott City and the Crayne community. Weather permitting, the target completion date for this milling and asphalt paving project is July 1.

Crittenden-Caldwell Counties

KYTC started the next phase of work along the new U.S. 641 construction corridor on Thursday, Oct. 20. With the completion of base cement stabilization on grade and drain work for the new U.S. 641, the next round of work will begin with placement of base material and base layers of asphalt for a two-lane driving surface. Placement of the base layers along the 6 miles of new highway in the fall is aimed at preventing erosion during the winter months. It will also allow paving of the driving surface and construction of connections to the existing roads to move ahead during the 2017 construction season. Starting on Thursday, drivers should also be alert for trucks hauling gravel and asphalt along existing U.S. 641 as well as along county roads that connect to the new U.S. 641 construction corridor. Initially, much of the truck traffic is expected to access the construction corridor via Crane Cemetery Road. Work on diversions for the construction of connecting points along existing U.S. 641/Marion-Princeton Road at mile point 4.05 in Caldwell County and mile point 5.7 in Crittenden County near the Coleman Road intersection will start as soon as utilities are moved out of the work zone. While the original design included construction of grade and drain for a four-lane highway running from Marion through southern Crittenden County to near Fredonia in Caldwell County, the new road is being completed as a two-lane "Super Two" highway as a cost-saving measure. The target completion date is July 1, 2018.

Graves County

A KYTC contractor plans to close the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway northbound ramp to KY 80 at Exit 22 in Mayfield starting on Monday, June 12. The northbound ramp from the Purchase Parkway to KY 80 at Mayfield Exit 22 will be closed starting at about 7 a.m. on Monday to allow additional grade work where the ramp and new main line of the parkway tie together. The Purchase Parkway northbound ramp to KY 80 at Exit 22 is expected to remain closed for about 2 weeks. Closing this ramp will shorten the time needed to complete the required work. Drivers may detour via the Purchase Parkway KY 121 Exit 24 Interchange to connect KY 80 through Mayfield. This is part of a larger project to reconstruct the Purchase Parkway at the Exit 21 and Exit 22 Interchanges to allow Interstate 69 to be routed southward along the parkway in the future. The total project has a target completion date of July 1, 2018.

A contractor for the KYTC plans to restrict a section of KY 301 to one lane during daylight hours in Graves County starting Tuesday, June 6. KY 301 will be restricted to one lane at mile marker 2.401 to allow erosion mitigation work around the Cockes Branch Bridge.  This work zone is along KY 301 northeast of Mayfield between River Road and KY 483. Due to recent wet weather, work is expected to ramp up during this week as weather allows. One lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers will be required during daylight hours to facilitate the work. The roadway at this site will be open to normal traffic flow at night. This work along KY 301 is expected to take three to four weeks to complete, weather permitting. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow. Harper Concrete is the prime contractor on this $753,347 group project.  This is one of 6 bridge and culvert sites scheduled for erosion mediation work; five in Graves County and one in McCracken County.  The contractor will be working for several weeks at each site.  

KYTC crews planned to add a 13-foot width restriction for southbound traffic at the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway/US 45 Exit 21 interchange at Mayfield, starting on Friday, July 22. The work zone was from about the Purchase Parkway 17 mile marker to about the 23-mile marker and includes a 13-foot maximum load width restriction for southbound traffic from mile point 21.63 to mile point 21.25. This southbound load with restriction is along the Exit 21 ramp that carries through-traffic from Mayfield to southward along the Purchase Parkway toward Fulton and the Kentucky-Tennessee state line. The 13-foot maximum load width restriction is due to the addition of barrier walls to allow work to widen this ramp. The work zone includes a 55-mile-per-hour work zone speed limit with an enhanced enforcement presence. The ramp has a 45-mile-per-hour work zone speed limit. It has a target completion date of July 1, 2018.

Hickman County

A KYTC contractor plans to begin milling and paving along a section of KY 307/Beulah Road in Hickman County starting Wednesday, June 21. The work runs from mile point 0.0 at the Carlisle-Hickman County Line extending northward to KY 80 at mile point 1.84. Milling is expected to start on Wednesday with asphalt paving planned for the week of June 26-30, weather permitting. Motorists are asked to be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers in the work zone.  Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and paving personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow. Jim Smith Contracting is the prime contractor on this $144,995 highway improvement project.

Livingston County

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans an extended closure on KY 937/Cutoff Road in Livingston County starting Monday, May 22. KY 937/Cutoff Road will be closed at mile point 0.874 to allow construction of a new bridge over Lee Creek.The new Lee Creek Bridge is expected to be ready for traffic in time for the start of school this fall. Flash flooding during July 2016 caused major transportation issues in Livingston County by taking out a culvert and damaging the Lee Creek Bridge along KY 935/Cutoff Road at a time when it was being used as a detour for construction of a new culvert on KY 453 south of Smithland. To get traffic restored on KY 937/Cutoff Road to restore the critical detour and provide access to the nearby elementary school, a temporary construction bridge was placed across Lee Creek.  That temporary bridge will now be removed and a new bridge constructed. There will be a marked detour via KY 453 and US 60. Jim Smith Contracting of Grand Rivers is the prime contractor on this $513,075 bridge replacement project.  The new bridge is expected to be ready for traffic by August 3, in time for the start of school this fall.

Marshall County

A contractor is planning a traffic shift with a 14 ft. load width restriction for mainline traffic at the Julian Carroll-Purchase Parkway/KY 348 Exit 43 Interchange at Benton starting around 12:30 p.m., on April 24. The contractor plans to establish two-way traffic with a 14 ft load width restriction running on the southbound lanes of the Purchase Parkway to allow crews to work on the northbound side.  Once the traffic shift is completed, the contractor plans to remove the concrete bases of the old toll booths along the median area and increasing clearance under the KY 348 Overpass within the interchange to comply with Federal Standards for Interstate 69. Motorists traveling the mainline of the Purchase Parkway should be prepared to encounter slowing and merging traffic as they approach the Exit 43 Interchange at Benton.  The shift to two-way traffic on the southbound lanes is expected to be in place for about two weeks. The contractor will then shift two-way to the northbound lanes to allow similar work along the southbound lanes. The Purchase Parkway/KY 348 Exit 43 Interchange is at Purchase Parkway mile point 42.555 and KY 348 mile point 7.439 at the west edge of Benton in Marshall County.  This work to bring the Purchase Parkway/KY 348 Benton Exit 43 Interchange up to current FHWA Interstate standards is among several projects aimed at allowing Interstate 69 to eventually be extended southward along the Purchase Parkway to Mayfield.  The old cloverleaf at Benton Exit 43 was designed for slow-speed traffic exiting after a stop at the interchange toll both.  The new design is a modern diamond interchange that provides additional space for acceleration and deceleration of traffic entering and leaving the main line of the 4-lane parkway. Traffic has been running on base courses of asphalt during the winter months.  Once this work along the main line of the Parkway is completed, the contractor will finish out the new ramps. As a reminder, work zones along the Purchase Parkway at the I-24 Exit 25 Interchange at Calvert City and at the US 45-Bypass Exit 21 Interchange in Mayfield continue to be active.  Both of those projects, also aimed at allowing I-69 to be extended southward along the parkway in the future, have a July 1, 2018, target completion date.

A KYTC contractor plans to ramp up work along US 62 at the I-24 Exit 27 Interchange in Calvert City starting Monday, March 20. This work is part of ongoing reconstruction of the Interstate 24/Purchase Parkway Exit 25 Interchange. Starting at 7 a.m., CDT, Monday, traffic will be restricted along the eastbound lanes of US 62 between the Campbell Drive/Kennedy Avenue intersection at mile point 8.553 extending eastward to Truck Plaza Lane at mile point 9.101, a distance of about ½ mile.  This 4-lane section of US 62 runs through the I-24 Exit 27 Interchange at Calvert City.  The contractor plans an extended closure of the outside eastbound lane with all traffic moved to the left-hand or passing lane. There will be a substantial amount of work in this area over the next several months.  At this time, the work zone lane restriction will only be for eastbound traffic. The work zone configuration may change from time to time to facilitate this work in coming months.This eastbound lane restriction on US 62 eastbound traffic through the I-24 Exit 27 Calvert City Interchange is part of a larger work zone along I-24 in Marshall County between the 25 and 27 mile marker and along the Purchase Parkway between the 49 and 52 mile marker at the I-24 Exit 25 Interchange.  Reconstruction of the Exit 25 interchange is aimed at allowing I-69 to be extended southward along the parkway in the future. The work zone includes a 55 mile per hour speed limit with an enhanced enforcement presence and double fines for citations.  Some of the crossovers and more restricted sections of the parkway have a 45 mile per hour work zone speed limit for safety. As a reminder, both eastbound and westbound I-24 traffic is running on a diversion through this work zone between I-24 Exit 25 and Exit 27.  This construction corridor has a high level of ongoing construction activity.  Appropriate caution is required. Jim Smith Contracting of Grand Rivers is the prime contractor on the $37.8 million interchange reconstruction project. The new I-24/I-69 interchange at Calvert City has a target completion date of July 1, 2018.

Trigg County

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a traffic shift along the US 68/KY 80 construction corridor at the east edge of Cadiz in Trigg County starting early the week of Sunday, April 23. As part of the construction of two additional lanes along US 68/KY 80 around Cadiz, the contractor plans a traffic shift immediately west of the US 68 intersection with US 68-Business at the east edge of Cadiz.  This intersection is at US 68 mile point 20.745 and US 68-Business mile point 4.519. As part of this traffic shift, two-way traffic will be established on the westbound lanes.  Moving traffic off the eastbound lanes will allow dirt work for construction of new eastbound lanes at the site.  This traffic shift is expected to take place Monday or Tuesday as weather permits to allow dirt work to begin around Wednesday.  This traffic shift is highly dependent on the weather. Once traffic is shifted, traffic is expected to run in this temporary configuration for about 6 to 8 weeks until the required grade and drain work is completed. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow. The contractor also anticipates ramping up work on a new bridge for the eastbound lanes of US 68 over Little River at mile point 19.1.  Motorists should be alert for increased construction activity all along the project area. Rogers Group is the prime contractor on this $25.5 million design-build project to construct additional lanes along a 2-lane section of U.S. 68/KY 80 around the southern edge of Cadiz from mile point 16.355 to mile point 20.745—a distance of about 4.3 miles.  The project started in May 2015 and is about 35 percent complete. Rogers Group, LLC, is also the prime contractor on a $54.2 million project to widen US 68/KY 80 to four lanes between Cadiz and Canton.  The target completion date for this section is November 30, 2019.

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to make the first concrete pour on the deck of the New 68/KY 80 Lake Barkley Bridge at Canton on Tuesday, June 6. Starting at 6 a.m., CDT, Tuesday, the concrete pour will create increased truck traffic along US 68/KY 80 near the bridge in Trigg County as concrete is delivered to the work site. This first concrete pour on a 150 ft. section of the east approach span will amount to 375 cubic yards of concrete. Motorists should be alert for flaggers stationed along US68/KY 80 near the construction zone to facilitate movement of trucks in and out of the site. Motorists should use appropriate caution. The bridge is located at US 68 mile point 8.596 in Trigg County at the eastern entrance to Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area.  The new bridge is at Cumberland River navigational mile point 63.1, is just downstream from the existing US 68/KY 80 Lake Barkley Bridge at Canton. PCL Civil Construction of Denver is the prime contractor on the $128.3 million project to construct a new Lake Barkley Bridge. The new bridge is expected to be ready for 2-lane traffic sometime in the spring of 2018 with finish work on the new bridge continuing through 2018.
