Exit 86 on US 41A to Reopen

lane restriction2 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (10/17/13) — A busy construction season along the 93 miles of Interstate 24 through Kentucky is coming to an end as construction is nearing completion along the last of three major rehabilitation projects this summer.

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to reopen northbound ramps from US 41-Alternate/Ft. Campbell Boulevard at Exit 86 in Christian County sometime during the day on Saturday, Oct. 19.

Extended work zone lane restrictions along the 7-mile section of Interstate 24 from the 86 to the 93 mile marker are coming down today. A short lane restriction for eastbound and westbound traffic on the main line of I-24 is expected to remain up at Exit 86 until the ramp work at that location is completed and the ramps are reopened to normal traffic sometime this weekend.

This summer contractors completed major rehabilitation work along about 34 miles of Kentucky’s 93 miles of Interstate 24.

The Christian County project included erosion repairs, drainage improvements, guardrail upgrades, and new asphalt pavement at the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line, as well as concrete repairs and diamond grinding along the rest of the 7-mile section.

The project is being completed about a month ahead of schedule. Rogers Group is the prime contractor this $13.97 million highway improvement project.

Improvements along the ramps to and from I-24 at the KY 115 Oak Grove/Pembroke Exit 89 that were not a part of this main project are planned in coming months.
