Ky. 365 paving work starts today

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans milling and paving along a section of Ky. 365 in northern Crittenden County starting today. 

This work zone runs from Chandler Farm Road at mile point 2.310 extending northward to the Crittenden-Union County line and the Tradewater River Bridge at mile point 8.540, a distance of 6.23 miles. 

The contractor will start with installation of construction signage and cutting back shoulders today to be followed by milling on Wednesday and the placement of wedging and leveling asphalt on Thursday, with surface asphalt paving to follow. 

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

Rogers Group is the prime contractor on this $454,232 highway improvement project. The target completion date is Aug. 5, weather permitting.
