This is becoming a habit! Another Kentucky Transportation Cabinet traffic advisory came out today for Tuesday (9/23) or Wednesday (9/24):


A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is moving ahead with improvements along Lovers Lane in Hopkinsville.

The contractor plans an explosive detonation along the work zone on Tuesday or Wednesday, September 23 or 24, 2014. This controlled detonation will require traffic to be stopped along US 41-Alternate/Ft. Campbell Boulevard near the Lovers Lane intersection at the south edge of Hopkinsville on Tuesday or Wednesday.

This traffic stoppage will be at US 41-Alternate mile point 12.157. Traffic will be stopped about 1500 ft. from the detonation point. Traffic is expected to be stopped for up to 10 minutes.

Some future use of explosives to aid in rock excavation along the project may require additional brief traffic stoppages.

The Lovers Lane (CR-1652) project is designed to improve connections between US 41-Alternate and the Breathitt Pennyrile Parkway while providing improved access to the Hopkinsville Convention Center entrance.

Westate Construction of Hopkinsville is the prime contractor on the $1,993,975 transportation improvement project. Completion is expected in mid-August, 2015.
