FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 3, 2012) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has awarded contracts for projects to provide much-needed repair of asphalt pavement on interstate routes in three Kentucky counties.
The largest of the three is a $14.84 million project for a 13-mile section of Interstate 24 in McCracken County. The project area begins near mile point 3 and extends to mile point 16. Jim Smith Contracting Co., of Grand Rivers, was awarded the contract, which calls for work to be completed by Sept. 30, 2013.
The Kentucky Highway Plan contains funding for pavement rehabilitation on numerous roadways in need of repair. Several rehabilitation projects have been done this year with two or more being prepared for bid letting in January and still others throughout 2013.
Other rehabilitation projects awarded by the Cabinet in November were:
