Upcoming NKY Road Construction

The Kentucky Transportation District 6 Office wants to remind you that the 2012 road construction season is just around the corner and so are a few of the remaining Revive the Drive NKY projects. Beginning the end of March, two projects will begin on two interstates in Campbell County.

The I-275 from the Ohio River to KY 9 (AA Highway) pavement rehab will continue. I-275 project is a concrete pavement and bridge restoration in Campbell County. The improvement will replace old pavement and provide improved ride quality. I-275 EB rehabilitation was completed at the end of 2011. The I-275 WB repair will be completed by September 1, 2012. The project also includes adding median cable barriers on I-275. The total cost of project: $34.8 million. Speed limit reduced to 55 mph.

The I-471 pavement repair project will also replace old pavement and improve ride quality and safety. This also includes the exit and entrance ramps as well as several bridge decks along the corridor. This also includes the Daniel Carter Beard Bridge deck. Roadway lighting will also be replaced in several locations. I-471 NB pavement from US 27 in Highland Heights to the Daniel Carter Beard Bridge will be replaced this year and then the SB side will be performed in 2013. These repairs will require lane closures. Ramp and exits will also be scheduled for extended closures. The total cost of project: $58 million.

To help minimize impacts, we are reaching out to you to help us relay the information to people who use these corridors. We highly suggest that motorists seek alternate routes and avoid the construction zones.

The total construction costs of the 8 Revive the Drive NKY Projects is approximately $184 million. Once construction begins, motorists should look for construction updates on the Revive the Drive NKY webpage http://transportation.ky.gov/revive-the-drive/Pages/default.aspx
