Traffic Advisory: US 68 between Campbellsville and Lebanon

By Chris Jessie, KYTC-D04

Elizabethtown, KY - A project to add alternating passing sections along US 68 between Campbellsville and Lebanon begins next week. As part of the Heartland Parkway Corridor, the 2+1 configuration will be familiar to motorists who travel KY 55 between Columbia and Campbellsville.

Work starts Monday, May 24, on the Lebanon end of the project along the westbound lane side. Construction will move toward Campbellsville and be under way through the entire corridor by mid-summer. Work will be phased to minimize impacts to traffic and maximize safety and efficiency.

Both directions of traffic will be maintained during the project with occasional delays possible for equipment and material mobilizations. Motorists should pay close attention to signs, slow down and exercise additional caution when traveling through the area, especially when workers are present.

Speed limit postings will be reduced to 45 in the work zone with enhanced enforcement.

The project was awarded to Haydon Materials, LLC earlier this month in a $17.8 million contract with a specified completion date of August 1, 2022.
