OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a $4.5 million road project for Owensboro could be awarded as early as next week.

The project is for resurfacing about five miles of U.S. 60.

The cabinet is putting another project for the highway out for bids in November. That multimillion-dollar job will involve rehabilitation of pavement on a 5 1/2-mile section.

A $73 million project to extend U.S. 60 was divided into two phases, and the extension opened in mid-September. Some construction continues, and the cabinet says the work is expected to be finished next year.

The highway is also known as the Wendell Ford Expressway.
