MURRAY – A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to establish a work zone for safety upgrades at the U.S. 641 intersection with KY 821/Sycamore Street in Murray starting Wednesday, May 8.

The contractor will be removing the ramp that carries traffic from U.S. 641/12th Street northbound to Sycamore Street eastbound, as well as replacing curb and drainage at the intersection.

Motorists should be alert for lane restrictions required to facilitate the work. This is along U.S. 641 near the 7.15 mile point.

This is part of a group Highway Safety Improvement Project (HSIP) that includes safety improvements at several locations. Harper Construction is the prime contractor. Work at this site in Murray is expected to take about two weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Motorists should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers, and construction personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

Motorists should be alert for changes in traffic flow at the intersection once the work is completed.
