A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to open a section of US 68/KY 80 to 4-lane traffic around Cadiz in TRIGG County on Friday, October 5, 2018.
This section of US 68 runs from the west connection with US 68-Business at milepoint 16.35 at Cadiz extending eastward to the eastern connection with US 68-Business at milepoint 20.7, a distance of 4.35 miles.
The contractor anticipates making the switch to 4-lane traffic sometime around Noon on Friday, weather permitting.
Motorists should be alert for construction personnel along the roadway during the day Friday moving traffic control equipment to make the shift to 4-lane traffic possible.
Motorists should use appropriate caution and be alert for changes in traffic flow that will be created at intersections along US 68 around Cadiz.
After the traffic shift on Friday, motorists should be aware that this continues to be an active work zone. Lane restrictions will be required along this section of US 68 to complete ongoing electrical work, as well as landscaping, guardrail work, and other finish work along the project area.
Rogers Group is the prime contractor on this $25.5 Million highway improvement project.
