Over the past few months, utility work along Kentucky Avenue between East to West streets has been ongoing. This work is required before the road can be rebuilt and is nearly complete. Teichert is finalizing their construction schedule and will soon begin temporary realignment of traffic lanes to allow for the widening of the roadway and building new curbs and sidewalk. Following the widening, they will reconstruct the existing roadway. With the exception of short-term closures, the road will be open and all businesses will be accessible from Kentucky Avenue. The project is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2018.
When complete, Kentucky Avenue will have new sidewalks, bike lanes, landscape and medians. The roadway between West and College streets will have one lane in each direction with a two-way turn lane. From College to East streets, the roadway will have two lanes in each direction with turn lanes and/or medians. The project is primarily grant funded with matching funds from the Measure E sales tax.
