US 27 pavement repairs to begin April 18

$1 million project to start in Highland Heights


Spring is here and so is the beginning of the road construction season.   Construction crews will begin work on the U.S. 27 pavement repair project in Highland Heights starting April 18.

“The section from Ripple Creek Road extending north to the intersection of I-471 and Sunset Drive will be repaired to provide smoother and safer ride for all those who travel along US 27,” said Rob Hans, Chief District Engineer for Department of Highways District 6.

The first project will take place between Bunning Drive and Ripple Creek heading southbound. Lane closures may be in place during non-peak hours. During the peak rush hours between 6 – 9 a.m. and 2 and 6 p.m. EDT, two-lanes will be open in each direction.  This section will be completed by Friday, April 22.

The second section will be performed at the intersection with KY 2345 (Martha Lane Collins Blvd). Traffic will be shifted through the intersection around the work area starting Friday, April 22.  All lanes will be re-opened by 6 a.m. EDT on Monday, April 25.  The other four sections will be announced at a later date.

Crews anticipate completing all pavement replacement by the Memorial Day weekend.  The overall completion date is set for Nov. 1.

Fox Enterprises, of Richmond, Kentucky, was awarded the low-bid contract of $1.072 million for this project.

  1. So what about the stretch of 27 from S Ft Thomas Ave out to I-471 in Higjland Heights? The recently patched pot holes on that stretch and it is now much worse than before they patched. Is that part on the schedule?????

  2. I think the potholes were actually better than the repairs.
