KYTC NEWS RELEASE

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to modify the work zone lane and load width restriction on the US 431 Green River/Rough River Bridge at Livermore in McLean County to aid in the movement of farm equipment at the site starting TODAY.

Traffic has been restricted to one lane at US 431 mile point 5.25 to allow navigational light upgrades on the Green River/Rough River Bridge.  This work zone includes an 11 ft. maximum load width restriction.

Starting today, the contractor will modify the work zone to allow loads of up to 15 ft. wide cross the bridge during overnight hours and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of each week until the project is completed.  The contractor will continue to have an 11 ft. maximum load width from approximately 7 a.m. to approximately 7 p.m., CDT, Monday through Thursday.

One lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by an automated signal will remain in place around the clock in this work zone.

Again, when the work zone is not active the width restriction will be widened to 15ft on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to assist farmers with moving some equipment during planning season.

This work zone arrangement with a 15 ft. maximum load width during off-work hours on the US 431 Green River/Rough River Bridge is expected to be in place until about May 15, 2016.

300 Industrial, LLC, of Hubbard, OH, is the prime contractor. Approximately 6,500 vehicles cross the US 431 Green River/Rough River Bridge in an average day.
