Lane Restrictions Planned on US 60 in Crittenden County
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a daytime lane restriction on US 60 in Crittenden County starting Monday, September 30, 2013, followed by a night closure starting at 8:30 p.m., CDT, on Tuesday, October 1, 2013.
This work along US 60/Sturgis Road in the Curve Inn area of Marion, KY, is for the replacement of a cross drain. This work site is on US 60 near the 10 mile marker in front of the 88 Dip Restaurant. This is in about the 100 Block of Sturgis Road between Fords Ferry Road and Sunset Drive in Marion.
Some prep work at the site will require a lane restriction starting Monday morning immediately following the morning school bus run. Due to the amount of work required, delays are likely in this work zone during daylight hours on both Monday and Tuesday.
Starting at 8:30 p.m., Tuesday the roadway will be closed to all traffic. US 60 is expected to reopen about midnight with metal plates temporarily covering the excavation.
During this closure passenger vehicles may detour through side streets. However, there is no practical truck detour for this closure point. Trucks should seek an alternate route via appropriate state highways.
On Wednesday, a lane restriction will resume as concrete is poured to cover the new cross drain with the roadway reopening to normal traffic flow once the concrete has cured.
Motorists should avoid this work zone, if possible, as delays are likely.
