Road work on Ky. 937 starts Monday

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane along sections of Ky. 937/Cut Off Road in Livingston County Monday to allow prep work for a milling and paving project the following week.

Lane restrictions along Ky. 937 are to prepare for milling and paving between U.S. 60 and Ky. 453/Iuka Road. The contractor plans to start milling and paving on April 6. Paving is expected to take two or three working days, weather permitting.

Base repairs were completed along this section in December to prepare for this resurfacing project.

The contractor plans to phase the work so as to minimize disruptions to school traffic. The paving portion of the work will be completed during spring break so as not to interfere with traffic to and from South Livingston Elementary, which is along this section.

Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

Jim Smith Contracting of Grand Rivers is the prime contractor on this $448,636 highway improvement project.
