The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of an upcoming traffic switch on US 127 (Wilkinson Boulevard) in Franklin County. Traffic will be moved to the southbound lanes between Mero Street and Hill Street (near the Capitol Plaza parking garage).
This traffic switch is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, August 20 and continue for approximately three weeks. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction on Wilkinson Boulevard. Contract crews will remove and replace concrete in the northbound driving lanes of Wilkinson Boulevard in this area. They will also install new curb and improve drainage structures in this area.
Due to construction, a section of the River View Trail between Leestown Lane and the entrance to Buffalo Trace Distillery is currently closed to cyclists and pedestrians. All portions of this paved path along Wilkinson Boulevard will be restored back to its original configuration before the project is complete. Weather permitting, the contractor plans to have the path fully repaired by the end of September.
