Somerset, Ky. (July 15, 2015) – A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans to begin installation of lights at the KY 61 and Louie B. Nunn/Cumberland Parkway interchange (Exit 46) in Adair County within the next few weeks.
Davis H Elliot Company Inc. was recently awarded the $498,098 federally funded lighting project which was inserted in the 2012 Kentucky Highway Plan and enacted on by the Kentucky General Assembly.
The project, consisting of the installation of high mass lighting throughout the interchange, is set to begin within the next few weeks, once completion of supplies order has been received.
Lane closures, lane restrictions, flaggers and construction personnel working in close proximity to traffic flow should be expected. Appropriate caution is required.
Work is expected to be completed by December 1. The starting date and duration of work may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays. Drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to allow extra time in reaching their destinations.
