Henderson, KY (Feb. 17, 2016) — Motorists traveling the U.S. 41 Twin Bridges need to be aware northbound traffic will be restricted to one lane on Thursday, February 18. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd says the lane restriction will be from 8:00 Thursday morning to 6:00 Thursday night 8 a.m. to allow the installation of additional safety-related signage and mill pavement between the end of the northbound bridge to the entrance to Ellis Park.

Efforts to mill pavement and upgrade signage are designed reduce the number of wet-weather crashes observed along this section of U.S. 41.

Todd says crews will mill a 1200 ft. section along both lanes and add surface friction to improve traction. Retro-reflective signage will be enhanced to further alert northbound traffic to the curve. He says the plans also include adding the site to a priority list for a high-traction surface that would likely be applied sometime this summer.

All northbound traffic will initially move to the right-hand or driving lane to allow work along the passing lane and median at the north end of the bridge. Around mid-day, Todd indicates traffic will transition to the left-hand or passing lane to allow work along the driving lane and right shoulder area.

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