The pavement rehabilitation and improvement project began today, Monday, March 14, on the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway.
The project will consist of shoulder repairs, grade, drain and ditching improvements along with milling and paving operations. Work will require lane closures — both east and westbound — between Exit 62 (Russell Springs) and mile point 72 (Pulaski County line). Motorists are reminded to pay close attention to highway signs and be prepared for traffic shifts through the duration of the project.
In addition, the speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph through the work zone and double fines will be in effect.
All work is expected to be complete by August 21.
The duration of work may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays. Drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to allow extra time in reaching their destination.
