Dixie Hwy. repaving project moving to next phase

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is ready to move forward with the next phase of asphalt pavement replacement on US 31W / Dixie Highway and Councilwoman Cindi Fowler (D-14) advises drivers to be aware of lane configuration changes as the project moves north.

“This weekend the repaving crews will move be moving the work zone north on Bethany Lane and Valley Station Road, so there will be some adjustments for drivers,” says Fowler.

The crews are wrapping up work on US 31 between Stonegate Manor Drive and Bethany Lane which began in mid- August.

According to KYTC, the new lane shifts will begin after 9:00 p.m. on Friday, October 2nd and the new traffic pattern will be in place by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. This phase of construction is scheduled for completion by mid-November.

Councilwoman Fowler was instrumental in working with State lawmakers to get this $14.5 million contract approved for pavement replacement on US 31W underway.

“Everyone should understand this is long overdue and drivers need to be patient,” says Fowler. “From what I have seen everyone is doing a good job working with the repaving crews and there have been no major traffic snarls as we move forward.”

According to KYTC the Project is divided into four phases:

•         Stonegate Manor Drive to Bethany Lane (mile points 6.6 to 7.7)

•         Bethany Lane to Valley Station Road (mile points 7.7 to 8.6)

•         Valley Station Road to West Pages Lane (mile points 8.6 to 10.5)

•         West Pages Lane to Greenwood Road (mile points 10.5 to 11.7)

Contract crews are removing the existing asphalt, installing the intermediate layer and repaving the roadway in each section before moving to the next one.
