Traffic Pattern Change on New Dixie Highway Project   

Median work to begin from I-264 to Crums Lane

 

LOUISVILLE (July 18, 2019) – Crews on The New Dixie Highway Project have completed construction of drainage structures, curbs, gutters and wider sidewalks between Herbert Avenue and Crums Lane. The next phase of work for this area begins tomorrow with the installation of concrete medians.

Beginning Friday, July 19, the left lanes of Dixie Highway will be closed in each direction between Interstate 264 (Watterson Expressway) and Crums Lane. This change in traffic pattern will continue for approximately three weeks. Left turn access for motorists will be maintained at Garrs Lane.

Also, the exit ramp from I-264 West to Dixie Highway (Exit 8B) will be reduced to one lane during the median construction.

By installing medians, The New Dixie Highway Project will restrict mid-block left turns – and guide drivers to turn at signalized intersections or designated U-turn points.  Installing medians is both the most transformative part of The New Dixie Highway project – but also the most dangerous for workers because they will be working in the middle of the roadway with traffic on both sides.

"Safety is our first priority, and in the long run, medians will prevent accidents," said John Callihan, project manager of The New Dixie Highway Project. "But in the short-term, this is a dangerous part of the construction process and we ask for extra vigilance from drivers during this phase of the project."

Median installation is happening at a couple of locations along the project corridor. The interior lanes immediately adjacent to the work are closed in each direction. As one section is complete, crews will move to a new section, meaning that drivers should stay alert as lane closures may change without notice.  

Medians will be "non-mountable" so passenger vehicles cannot drive over them. Widths will vary with available space, with landscaping at key locations. While it may seem counter-intuitive to drivers, restricting mid-block left-turns creates not only a safer corridor, but a more efficient corridor. Some drivers will have to drive slightly further to reach their destination, but the improved efficiency and reduction in accident-related congestion will mean a better traffic flow for everyone.

The New Dixie Highway Project broke ground in December of 2017 and all the major components will be complete in December 2019. Some final parts of project – such as landscaping and final surfacing – require warm weather and will be completed in the summer of 2020.

About the New Dixie Highway Project

The New Dixie Highway Project is a $35 million investment to improve safety, mobility and livability along the corridor.  The project will concentrate on three major areas of improvement:

 

  • Roadway safety and design improvements, including raised medians and left-hand-only turn lanes along the most congested and dangerous section (Crums Lane to Greenwood Road).

     
  • A new Intelligent Transportation System that will improve and coordinate traffic signal timing along the entire corridor.

     
  • The region's first TARC bus rapid transit route, with eight priority buses and 37 highly visible bus stations and stops that will improve travel times for both transit riders and drivers.

Preventive maintenance work to begin on KY 248 in Spencer County

 

Louisville, KY (July 10, 2019) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) recently awarded a contract for a preventive maintenance project on KY 248 (Briar Ridge Road) in Spencer County. This project involves the application of a cost-effective treatment, known as a cape seal, to extend the life of the pavement. The construction limits are from KY 44 to the Little Beech Creek bridge near the Taylorsville Marina (mile markers 0.0 to 2.58).

The cape seal is an application of a chip seal followed by a thin asphalt overlay. The chip seal begins with an asphalt emulsion sprayed on the roadway followed by a layer of coarse stone spread evenly over the emulsion. This portion of the application is left in place for several days (up to two weeks) to allow the stone to set and for open traffic to further seat the aggregate materials into the emulsion. The roadway will contain some loose aggregate, and there may be a slight increase in driving noise – both of these issues improve with time and traffic volume. After this curing period, a thin asphalt overlay is paved onto the roadway.

Contract crews will be doing preparation work on Thursday, July 11 and Friday, July 12. They plan to begin the chip seal phase the week of July 15. Paving of the asphalt overlay will take place in the weeks to follow.

Mago Construction Company was awarded this contract in the amount of $650,000. Construction is scheduled for completion by September 2019.

Interstate 65 weekend roadwork in Jefferson County June 28-July 1

 

Louisville, KY (June 28, 2019) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of roadwork in two locations this weekend on Interstate 65 in Jefferson County. One ongoing construction project and one maintenance project will require lane closures and one ramp closure.
