GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a contractor will paving asphalt along US 45 in Graves County north of Mayfield starting this week.
According to KYTC, the asphalt paving project runs along US 45/Mayfield-Paducah Road from the south intersection with KY 1241 at mile point 20.789 extending northward to about the 28 mile marker near the Pittman Road intersection, a distance of about 7.2 miles.
The Jim Smith Contracting Company, LLC, of Grand Rivers will be the prime contractor on this $3,066,952 highway improvement project. KYTC says work along this section of US 45 is expected to take about three to four weeks to finish, weather permitting.
KYTC says drivers should use appropriate caution where equipment, flaggers and construction personnel will be on the road in close proximity to traffic flow.
