U.S. 641 repairs to be made in Lyon County

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans base repairs along a section of U.S. 641 in Lyon County starting Monday.

The base repairs to be followed by paving in a few weeks run along U.S. 641 from mile-point 0.087 near the U.S. 62 intersection east of Eddyville and run northward to mile-piont 5.715 at the Lyon-Caldwell County line. This is along U.S. 641 between Eddyville and Fredonia.

The base repair work is expected to take about two days to complete.  The contractor will then allow traffic to run on this section to give the repaired areas an opportunity to settle.

The contractor will then return for asphalt paving along this section starting around July 13.  Paving is expected to take four to five days to complete, weather permitting.

Motorists should be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers whenever crews are present in the work zone. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.
