Project Expected To Run Through January 2020
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (Nov. 18, 2019) – A project to replace the bridge deck on KY 743 near mile point 7 over Beaver Dam Creek (New Grove Road) has started with a long-term closure. The road closed Monday, November 18th and is expected to reopen on Jan. 3, but work is weather dependent. A signed detour utilizing KY 422, U.S. 31-W and KY 101 will be in place. Motorists should allow for extra travel time due to the detour.
The project will rehabilitate or replace seven (7) bridges in Casey, Edmonson, McCreary, Metcalfe and Wayne Counties as part of the Bridging Kentucky Program. Scott & Murphy Inc. was awarded the project on August 8, 2019 in the amount of $4,412,713.
