Traffic ADVISORY  – NB 41 Lane Restriction Monday, November 13

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict northbound traffic to one lane along a section of the US 41 North Strip at HENDERSON on Monday, November 13, 2017.
Northbound traffic will be restricted to one lane at US 41 milepoint 16.8 to allow erosion and drainage work along the northbound lanes just north of the Barrett Boulevard intersection.  A number of drainage ditches converge with Sugar Creek at this location before the creek is routed through a culvert under US 41.
Northbound traffic will be restricted to one lane starting at the Barret Boulevard intersection and extending northward for a short distance to allow the KYTC Henderson County Highway Maintenance Crew to remove a section of damaged curb and gutter.  This northbound work zone is along the US 41 North Henderson Strip between Economy Inn & Suites and the Ramada Inn.  Some delays are possible during the movement and positioning of equipment required to facilitate the work.
This northbound work zone lane restriction is expected to go up around 7:30 a.m., CST, on Monday.  Once the old curbing is removed at this site, the City of Henderson will have a contractor pour new concrete curbing and repair the eroded area along the roadway.  The KYTC Henderson County Highway Crew will then return to backfill behind the new curbing.  Work in this concentrated area is expected to be completed before dark on Monday.
Due to the northbound lane restriction on the US 41 North Strip on Monday, commuters should consider an alternate route.  Passenger vehicles may avoid this northbound lane restriction with a self-detour via US 60 to Marywood Drive or via Elm Street to rejoin US 41 at Watson Lane.
Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.  The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will attempt to provide timely notice when the work is completed and the northbound work zone removed.
