SOMERSET, KY (1 Mar 2017) - Motorists traveling on Interstate 75 in Rockcastle County will soon notice the familiar orange barrels that mark the start of construction season.
The $31 million project, set to begin on March 12, 2017, will widen the section of I-75 at mile points 64.5 to 69 in both directions from four lanes to six lanes.
> Crews will begin milling and laying asphalt on the outside shoulders in both directions. Traffic will be shifted to the two outside lanes once the shoulders have been paved. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained throughout the project. In some instances, the project will require that traffic be reduced to one lane - limited to nighttime work only.
Speed limits in the work zone will be reduced from 70 to 55 mph.
The project also includes the replacement of two overpasses at KY 3275 and KY 1505. Through traffic on KY 3275 will be prohibited during the construction of the new overpass. A signed detour for KY 3275 will be posted when construction begins. The construction of the new KY 1505 overpass will transpire next to the current overpass, resulting in a minimal impact to traffic. Both structures are scheduled for construction later this year.
L-M Asphalt Partners LTC., d/b/a ATS Construction, of Lexington, KY, was awarded the $31 million contract. The anticipated completion for the project is October 2018.
The starting date and duration of work may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays. Motorists can access travel and traffic conditions at GoKY.com or contribute their own reports at www.waze.com or via the Waze mobile application.
