Traffic Advisory - Daytime Closure on KY 1069 at Brown Badgett Loop Connector

badget bridge 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (11/14/13) - A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans to close KY 1069/Stagecoach Road in Hopkins County on Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, as part of ongoing work on the new Brown Badgett Loop Connector Bridge Project.

This closure on KY 1069/Stagecoach Road from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., CST, Friday, is to allow additional improvements to a dip near the intersection with the new connector.

By allowing the contractor to close the road to traffic the work can be completed quicker and with a greater level of safety for both workers and the driving public. Additionally, lane restrictions may be required in this area as work continues in coming weeks.

Work to raise the dip in the roadway is to provide better sight-distance at the new intersection.

During the design of the project, engineers carefully examined the dip in KY 1069 near the intersection. An analysis determined that an acceptable line of sight existed. However, as the new intersection started to take shape, KYTC engineers determined that additional improvements were warranted. Raising a small portion of the roadway in the low spot will provide an additional margin of safety at this location.

The closure on KY 1069/Stagecoach Road is at mile point 1.632 between Robert Lane and J.D. Buchanan Road. Message boards have been placed at the site to alert motorists to the planned closure.

Work on the New Brown Badgett Loop Connector Overpass started April 8. It is expected to be ready for traffic around December 1st.
