Construction to begin on U.S. 127 in Franklin County

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced that roadway improvements to U.S. 127 (Wilkinson Boulevard) in Franklin County are set to begin. 

The $8.9 million project will involve the removal and replacement of the concrete pavement on U.S. 127 from West Broadway to Holmes Street (mile point 8.6 to 10.5). The construction work will also address drainage issues in the area.

Work is scheduled to begin this week with the contractor cleaning culverts and making preparation for drain pipe replacement. Lane closures are possible and the speed limit in the work zone has been reduced to 35 MPH.

The pavement work is scheduled to begin in mid-March and at that time U.S. 127 will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Traffic will be shifted to the southbound lanes while crews replace the pavement in the northbound lanes. Once that phase of work is complete, traffic will use the newly paved northbound lanes while work is performed in the southbound lanes. 

KYTC has coordinated with the City of Frankfort Parks Department for improvements to the medians. As part of this construction project, the paved islands from the Capital Plaza Hotel to Riverview Park will be replaced with grass. The Parks Department has agreed to landscape and maintain the islands.

The W.L. Harper Company of Hebron, Kentucky was awarded this contract with construction scheduled for completion in October 2014.
