FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ky.

Another right-turn lane will also be constructed on the I-64 westbound off-ramp to U.S. 60.
The construction will take place on U.S. 60 between Jett Boulevard and KY 1681 (Duncan Road) at the I-64 interchange. Preparation for the project began this month with signs alerting drivers of the pending construction. As the project progresses, weekday lane closures are possible from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Mondays through Fridays. Weekend lane closures are possible from 6 p.m. on Fridays through 6 a.m. on Mondays. All other times two lanes of traffic in each direction will be maintained on U.S. 60.
The contract was awarded on Oct. 7 to Bluegrass Contracting Corp. of Lexington for $2,537,600. The project is scheduled to be completed by Oct. 30, 2022.
