Louisville, KY (February 21, 2013) – With warmer weather forecasted, construction continues this weekend on concrete repairs to Interstate 264 (Watterson Expressway) in the area between Browns Lane and Westport Road (mile points 18.4 and 20.7).    Work was postponed last weekend due to subfreezing temperatures.  Two exit ramps on I-264 will be closed as well as one lane on Interstate 64.   

The following exits will be closed from 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 22 until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, February 25:

• Exit ramp from eastbound I-264 to westbound I-64 (Exit 19B)
• Exit ramp from westbound I-264 to eastbound I-64 (Exit 19A)


The signed detour for the I-264 East to I-64 West exit (Exit 19B) will be to follow eastbound I-264 to the Westport Road exit (Exit 21) and at the bottom of the ramp turn left.  Motorists can access westbound I-264 and proceed to westbound I-64.

The signed detour for the I-264 West to I-64 East exit will be to follow westbound I-264 to the exit for Breckenridge Lane South (Exit 18A).  Once on Breckenridge Lane, motorists can immediately access eastbound I-264 and proceed to eastbound I-64.

In addition, the right lane of westbound I-64 will be closed this weekend at the bridge over I-264 (mile point 12.4).  This lane closure is also scheduled from 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 22 until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, February 25.

The speed limit in the work zone is reduced to 45 MPH and double fines will be enforced.

For the next few weeks, concrete repairs will be taking place primarily on weekends.  Lane and ramp closures are possible from 8:00 p.m. on Friday until 6:00 a.m. on Monday.

When diamond grinding of the pavement begins later in the project, lane and ramp closures are possible on weeknights Monday – Friday from 8:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. the following morning.

Hall Contracting, Inc. was awarded the contract for this project in the amount of $8.1 million.  The work is scheduled for completion by July 31, 2013. 

The actual starting date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur.  Dial 511 or log on to 511.ky.gov for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  You can also get traffic information for the District 5 counties at www.facebook.com/KYTCDistrict5.

Milton Madison slide scheduled for summer 2013 (web version).docx
  
1/24/2013 2:19 PMClifford, Andrea (KYTC)
Louisville, Ky. (January 24, 2013) – The much-anticipated “slide” of a new, wider Milton-Madison Bridge is scheduled to take place this summer, marking near-completion of the bridge replacement project. While the event is currently expected to occur in mid-July, the schedule is dependent on weather and subject to change.

With the help of hydraulic jacks, the new 2,427-foot-long steel truss bridge – currently sitting on temporary piers – will move along sliding girder beams to its permanent home on top of the existing piers which are being rehabbed and reused.

As it has for all but a few days during construction, the existing bridge remains open to traffic, with a 3-ton weight limit and 36-foot vehicle length restriction. 

Project officials considered sliding the bridge this spring, but that would have made it necessary to pour the concrete bridge deck in the winter, which is a more complex process. Instead, they plan to pour the deck this spring and slide the truss this summer.

Several crucial steps must take place before the slide can occur, including:
• Completion of the new bridge road deck, expected to take place this spring when concrete pouring conditions are best.
• The shift of traffic from the existing bridge to the new bridge which is sitting on temporary piers.
• Removal of the old truss – or upper steel portion of the existing bridge.
• Completion of pier rehabilitation with the addition of wider pier caps to accommodate the new 40-foot-wide bridge – twice the width of the old bridge.    

Walsh Construction’s complex, multistep method of replacing the U.S. 421 bridge – which connects Milton, Ky., with Madison, Ind. – has allowed the bridge to remain open during construction, avoiding the originally expected year-long closure. The bridge will be closed for several days while the slide and approach connections are completed this summer.

The Milton-Madison Bridge Project – a joint effort between the INDOT and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet – has received numerous awards. It was named one of the top 10 bridge projects in the country by Roads & Bridges Magazine, received a 2012 Best of What's New Award from Popular Science magazine and received several state and national engineering awards for innovation. For more information, visit www.MiltonMadisonBridge.com or follow the project on Twitter.

LOUISVILLE, KY (January 15, 2013) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) road crews in Louisville and the surrounding counties will be pre-treating interstates and other priority routes today to prepare for the rain/sleet mix that is expected to fall this evening and through the overnight hours.  Motorists should be alert for slow moving trucks out spraying brine throughout the day.

The pre-treatment of "salt-brine" gives KYTC crews a head start on the winter weather.  The brine dries on pavement surfaces leaving a thin layer of salt that will activate when precipitation begins to fall.  The salt-water type treatment also combats snow and ice buildup on driving surfaces making it easier to plow off.

As the pre-treating work continues today, KYTC District 5 staff will be evaluating an appropriate response level for the evening hours based on changes in the forecast and road surface conditions as the winter precipitation develops.

District 5 personnel have the responsibility for clearing more than 2,500 miles of state-maintained highways in the counties of Bullitt, Franklin, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble.  Crews are prepared to work long hours treating area roadways. 158 state and contract trucks are utilized to salt and plow the roadways in these eight counties with 64 of these trucks concentrated on the interstates in Jefferson County.  Per an agreement with Louisville Metro government, the Metro Department of Public Works will be clearing snow and ice from all state routes in Jefferson County, excluding interstates.

To view the priority network for snow removal by county, go to http://transportation.ky.gov/Maintenance/Pages/Snow-and-Ice-Priority-Maps.aspx.

Currently, the District 5 facilities combined have approximately 38,500 tons of salt, 147,500 gallons of liquid calcium chloride and 83,000 gallons of salt brine on hand to combat snow and ice this winter.  District 5 has the equipment to produce more brine in order to replenish supplies.


As KYTC crews have made preparations for clearing roadways, motorists should also be prepared for driving in snow and ice by following these tips:

• Make sure your vehicle is sufficiently winterized – check the battery, antifreeze level, heater, defroster, wipers and windshield washer. Check the forecast and call 511 or visit 511.ky.gov for the latest condition reports before traveling. You can also get traffic information for the District 5 counties at www.facebook.com/KYTCDistrict5.  Avoid nonessential travel if conditions are dangerous.
• Dress warmly for the weather –in layers of loose-fitting, lightweight clothing, in anticipation of unexpected emergencies.
• Try to keep your gas tank at least two-thirds full to prevent fuel line freezing and to prepare for possible lengthy delays on the roadway.
• Make sure a friend or relative is aware of your travel route.
• Carry a cell phone.
• Make sure your vehicle has an emergency care kit. It should include jumper cables, flares or reflectors, windshield washer fluid, an ice scraper, blankets, nonperishable food, a first aid kit, and traction material.
• Drive carefully. Allow plenty of time to get to your destination. Do not use cruise control.
• Give a wide berth to snow removal equipment. 
• Remember that bridges and exit and entrance ramps can be icy when other areas are not.
• Stopping in snow requires more braking distance than stopping on dry pavement – up to four times more distance. Make sure to put plenty of distance between yourself and the vehicle ahead.
• Be visible. Dull, cloudy days will cut down on visibility, so drive using low-beam headlights.
• Steer into the skid. Stay calm and ease your foot off the gas while carefully steering in the direction you want the front of your vehicle to go.
   

Condition reports on major routes are available by calling 511 or logging onto the 511 travel and traffic information website at www.511.ky.gov.  Road conditions are described in the following manner:

Wet Pavement – The roadway is wet. Ice could form as temperatures drop.

LOUISVILLE, KY (December 20, 2012) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) road crews in Louisville and the surrounding counties are ready for the area’s first snowfall.  KYTC staff are monitoring the weather and will send salt trucks out on the roadways as temperatures drop below freezing this evening.  State trucks will be patrolling roadways as rain is expected to turn to snow overnight.  

District 5 personnel have the responsibility for clearing more than 2,500 miles of state-maintained highways in the counties of Bullitt, Franklin, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble.  Crews are prepared to work long hours treating area roadways. 158 state and contract trucks are utilized to salt and plow the roadways in these eight counties with 64 of these trucks concentrated on the interstates in Jefferson County.  Per an agreement with Louisville Metro government, the Metro Department of Public Works will be clearing snow and ice from all state routes in Jefferson County, excluding interstates.

To view the priority network for snow removal by county, go to http://transportation.ky.gov/Maintenance/Pages/Snow-and-Ice-Priority-Maps.aspx.

The District 5 facilities combined have approximately 42,000 tons of salt, 157,000 gallons of liquid calcium chloride and 80,000 gallons of salt brine on hand to combat snow and ice this winter.  District 5 has the equipment to produce more brine in order to replenish supplies.


As KYTC crews have made preparations for clearing roadways, motorists should also be prepared for driving in snow and ice by following these tips:

• Make sure your vehicle is sufficiently winterized – check the battery, antifreeze level, heater, defroster, wipers and windshield washer. Check the forecast and call 511 or visit 511.ky.gov for the latest condition reports before traveling. You can also get traffic information for the District 5 counties at www.facebook.com/KYTCDistrict5.  Avoid nonessential travel if conditions are dangerous.
• Dress warmly for the weather –in layers of loose-fitting, lightweight clothing, in anticipation of unexpected emergencies.
• Try to keep your gas tank at least two-thirds full to prevent fuel line freezing and to prepare for possible lengthy delays on the roadway.
• Make sure a friend or relative is aware of your travel route.
• Carry a cell phone.
• Make sure your vehicle has an emergency care kit. It should include jumper cables, flares or reflectors, windshield washer fluid, an ice scraper, blankets, nonperishable food, a first aid kit, and traction material.
• Drive carefully. Allow plenty of time to get to your destination. Do not use cruise control.
• Give a wide berth to snow removal equipment. 
• Remember that bridges and exit and entrance ramps can be icy when other areas are not.
• Stopping in snow requires more braking distance than stopping on dry pavement – up to four times more distance. Make sure to put plenty of distance between yourself and the vehicle ahead.
• Be visible. Dull, cloudy days will cut down on visibility, so drive using low-beam headlights.
• Steer into the skid. Stay calm and ease your foot off the gas while carefully steering in the direction you want the front of your vehicle to go.
   

Condition reports on major routes are available by calling 511 or logging onto the 511 travel and traffic information website at www.511.ky.gov.  Road conditions are described in the following manner:

Wet Pavement – The roadway is wet. Ice could form as temperatures drop.

Partly Covered – The roadway is partly covered with snow, slush or ice.  Markings may be obscured.

Mostly Covered – The roadway is mostly covered with snow, slush or ice. Roadway markers may be difficult to see because of packed snow and rutting conditions.

Completely Covered – The roadway is completely covered with snow, slush or ice and markings are obscured.

Impassable – Roadway conditions are not suitable for travel unless required by an emergency.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (November 27, 2012) – After several months of preliminary design work, environmental analysis and public involvement, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has chosen an alignment for improving safety on KY 146 in Henry County.  From the three alternates that were shown to the public at a meeting in April 2012, the project team selected Alternate 3 (view alternates).  Engineers can now move forward with detailed design for realigning a 7.6 mile section of roadway between KY 153 in Pendleton and US 421 in New Castle. 

The project began in the fall of 2010 with representatives from KYTC and GRW Inc., consultant engineering firm, meeting with a local advisory committee to obtain input about safety concerns along the KY 146 corridor.  This committee included local business owners, farmers, residents, law enforcement officers, county school staff and elected officials.  Engineers used the input from this group along with data regarding traffic volumes, crash history, the floodplain and utilities to develop two alternates for roadway improvements. 

These alternates were presented to the advisory committee in September 2011.  Based on feedback from this meeting, Alternate 3 was developed.  This alignment closely follows the existing roadway while providing for improvements to sight distances and sharp curves. This alternate is the same as Alternate 1, but the alignment was moved to the south side of the existing roadway between MP 4.5 and Broko Lane to reduce property impacts.

Alternate 3 also retains the safety improvements that were made to KY 146 in 2006 near the entrance to Safety Kleen.  The total cost to build this alignment is estimated at $23.5 million, which includes design, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation and construction.

“The project team agreed on Alternate 3 because it was favored by the public, it has the least amount of property impacts and the least utility impacts,” said Matt Bullock, Chief District Engineer for the Department of Highways Louisville District.  “This alignment meets all of the geometric requirements for safety and will cost less to construct than the other alternates.”

This information was provided to the advisory committee on November 7 during a meeting at the Henry County Fair Grounds.  Those in attendance supported the decision to proceed with Alternate 3.

To facilitate funding availability, the project has been broken into two segments.  The first segment extends from KY 153 in Pendleton to Lost Creek, a distance of 4.7 miles.  This segment is prioritized to be built first due to the high number of crashes in the area.  The second segment extends from Lost Creek to US 421 in New Castle.

The next steps for this project include working on the final design of Segment 1 in 2013 with right-of-way acquisition scheduled to begin in the spring of 2014.  Utility relocation is anticipated for the spring of 2015 followed by construction in 2016.  Work on Segment 2 will be performed concurrently with Segment 1, but each phase will begin about one year later.

KY 146 was originally built in the 1930’s.  The roadway carries an average of 4200 vehicles per day.
