A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has postponed the start of an extended closure of KY 1824/Old Murray Road in southern Marshall County to about October 1, 2021.

A crew that had planned to move to the project has been held up on another worksite.

This extended closure of KY 1824/Old Murray Road at mile point 1.564 is to allow the Peggy Ann Creek Bridge to be reconstructed. This is along KY 1824/Old Murray Road about 1/2 mile north of the KY 402 intersection in Hardin.

There will be no marked detour. However, motorists may self-detour via each end of KY 1824 to KY 402 or U.S. 641.

The contractor and KYTC personnel will announce a more specific start date as the project timeline develops.

Jim Smith Contracting, LLC, of Grand Rivers is the prime contractor on this $977,219 group bridge reconstruction project. A target completion date will be established once a start date is set.
