Kentucky Transportation Completed/Upcoming Projects
Last year, our District Office coordinated several needed interstate
pavement repairs which we called Revive the Drive - NKY. Below are the
projects that were completed in the 2011 construction season:
I-275 median cable barriers in Boone County, totaling 12.1 miles - $1.3
I-275 WB concrete pavement repair project in Boone County. Sections of
pavement were replaced between the Kenton County line/Turfway Road
underpass and the airport interchange (Exit 4) - $2.9 million.
I-75 Asphalt Resurfacing in Boone and Kenton Counties between the 166 -
183 mile-markers - $6.2 million.
I-275 concrete pavement repair project from US 25 to KY 9 in Kenton
County that included the I-275 EB Exit ramp to KY 9 in Wilder to be
widened and installing median cable barriers - $15 million.
I-71 NB and SB repair and resurfacing project from the I-71/I-75
interchange to the vicinity of Sparta Exit 57 - $ 35.9 million
I-75 NB and SB concrete pavement and joint repair work on several
bridges from Dixie Highway to the Brent Spence Bridge - $14.2 million.
Still in progress:
Painting of all I-275 steel bridges in Kenton County (77 - 82 mile
marker). Eighteen bridges in all, including Dr. Poweleit Licking River
Bridge, KY 16, KY 17, KY 1303, US 25, CNO and TP Railroad Bridge,
Crescent Springs Road and I-75/I-275 interchange bridges - $15.5
The Kentucky Transportation District 6 Office wants to remind you that
the 2012 road construction season is just around the corner and so are a
few of the remaining Revive the Drive - NKY projects. Beginning the end
of March, two projects will begin on two interstates in Campbell County.
* The I-275 from the Ohio River to KY 9 (AA Highway) pavement
rehab will continue. I-275 project is a concrete pavement and bridge
restoration in Campbell County. The improvement will replace old
pavement and provide improved ride quality. I-275 EB rehabilitation was
completed at the end of 2011. The I-275 WB repair will be completed by
September 1, 2012. The project also includes adding median cable
barriers on I-275. The total cost of project: $34.8 million. Speed
limit reduced to 55 mph.
* The I-471 pavement repair project will also replace old
pavement and improve ride quality and safety. This also includes the
exit and entrance ramps as well as several bridge decks along the
corridor. This also includes the Daniel Carter Beard Bridge deck.
Roadway lighting will also be replaced in several locations. I-471 NB
pavement from US 27 in Highland Heights to the Daniel Carter Beard
Bridge will be replaced this year and then the SB side will be performed
in 2013. These repairs will require lane closures. Ramp and exits will
also be scheduled for extended closures. The total cost of project: $58
To help minimize impacts, we are reaching out to you to help us relay
the information to people who use these corridors. We highly suggest
that motorists seek alternate routes and avoid the construction zones.
The total construction costs of the 8 Revive the Drive - NKY Projects is
approximately $184 million. Once construction begins, motorists should
look for construction updates on the Revive the Drive - NKY webpage
or thru local websites, media updates.
