ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (Tue 6 Feb 2018) The next improvement to US 68 in Green County will soon be under construction. A contract to address safety and correct geometric deficiencies along a stretch known locally as Vaughn Curve is now awarded.

Rame Contracting is the low bidder at $2.34 million, which is approximately $600,000 below the Transportation Cabinet Engineer's Estimate. The project begins at the eastern side of Russell Creek Bridge and extends east nearly one mile, tying into the US 68/KY 61 intersection project currently under construction.

Over the next couple of weeks, preliminary work will take place, including utility relocation and clearing. Flaggers will be directing traffic at various intervals, but motorists should not be significantly impacted during this phase of work.

As work progresses this spring and summer, significant traffic impacts and dates will be announced through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 4 Public Information Office. The contract calls for completion of the project in October, 2018.
