POSTPONED: 641 milling to disrupt traffic

The milling and paving project along U.S. 641 in Crittenden County scheduled for this week has been postponed. It will be rescheduled at a later date, according to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spoakesman Keith Todd.

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans milling and paving along US 641 in southern Crittenden County starting Thursday.

This project runs along US 641 from the Crittenden-Caldwell County Line to the US 60 intersection in Marion at mile point 7.494.

Milling is expected to start Thursday morning and take about 3 days to complete.  Asphalt paving will follow starting around Monday, October 10th and is expected to be completed in 4 or 5 days, weather permitting.

Motorists should be prepared to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers during daylight hours.  Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

Approximately 5,000 vehicles travel this section of US 641 in an average day.

Rogers Group is the prime contractor on this $819,226 highway improvement project.  The target completion date is mid-October.
