Motorists who regularly travel the Audubon Parkway are getting a welcomed Christmas present. A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to remove a work zone along the Audubon Parkway in Henderson County.
This work zone running from mile point 0.0 at the Pennyrile Parkway Interchange extending eastward to mile point 8.5 has been gradually transitioning back to more normal traffic flow since just before Thanksgiving. Work has progressed to a point that all four lanes should be reopened to traffic along most of the work zone by Friday afternoon.
Once all four lanes are reopened, the contractor will still have some minor finish work to complete between now and Christmas Eve. Whenever possible that finish work will be accomplished with short and intermittent lane restrictions or shoulder restrictions.
Thanks to everyone for their patience during this extended reconstruction of the Audubon Parkway from the Pennyrile Parkway Interchange to mile point 8.5.
Hall Contracting is the prime contractor on this $12.29 million highway improvement project. The project included repair of a dip near the 11 mile marker on the Audubon completed last year.
