Beginning Monday, March 18, Ky. 55 South in Adair County will be reduced to one lane at mile point 6.333 as crews begin construction for a bridge widening project.
This project is located approximately three miles north of the Glens Fork community and just north of Gaddie-Shamrock.
Temporary traffic signals will be in place on north and south approaches for the lane closure. The current 55 MPH speed limit will be reduced to 35 MPH through the work zone beginning at mile point 6.1 and ending at mile point 6.6.
In addition, lane width will be restricted to 8-1/2 feet.
Work is scheduled to be completed by May 15. 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 destination.
The prime contractor that will perform the work on this project is Kay & Kay Contracting, LLC from London, Ky.
