Contract awarded for third section of KY 237 reconstruction
$22.4 million project scheduled to be complete in 2015
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Nov. 5, 2012) – A contract for one of three sections of a project to reconstruct and widen KY 237 in Boone County has been awarded by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
The $22.4 million project will reconstruct a 1.35-mile section of Camp Ernst Road (KY 237) from Rogers Lane to Burlington Pike (KY-18).
This is the second construction contract awarded in the three-section project. Construction of Section I, a $9.2 million project running from U.S. 42 to approximately Rose Petal Drive, is under way and due to be complete by spring 2013.
Still to be awarded is a contract for Section II, which begins at Valley View and extends to Rogers Lane. Right of way acquisition is set to begin in the spring, but construction must await additional funding from the state.
While Section II awaits funding, Section III is scheduled to get under way in 2013.
L-M Asphalt Partners LTD was awarded the contract on a low bid of $22,436,743.
