Final Milling and Paving Projects for 2016 to Begin Monday

Release posted November 3, 2016

Beginning Monday, November 7, a contractor will begin the milling and paving of several streets in Paducah.  This is the final round of milling and paving for 2016.  Paving will commence after the milling.  The work will take approximately two weeks to finish, weather-permitting.

The streets and areas that will be affected are as follows:

  • Parking lot of the Paducah Police Department at 1400 Broadway
  • Broadway from 13th to 21st Streets
  • Fountain Avenue from Broadway to Martin Luther King Drive (this excludes the section of Fountain Avenue around Lang Park (also known as Circle Park))
  • Clarence Gaines Street (formerly South 7th Street) from Washington Street to Adams Street
  • South 5th Street from Adams Street to Ohio Street
  • South 6th Street from Broad Street to George Street

During the street resurfacing work, crews expect to keep one lane of traffic open.  However, for the safety of the crews, drivers are urged to find an alternate route.  Please use caution, and watch for the work crews and traffic control devices.  During this construction period, please avoid parking curbside on the affected streets that typically allow curbside parking. 

This street rehabilitation project is part of the City of Paducah’s annual street improvement plan.  Part of the funding is provided through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Municipal Aid Program (MAP).  MAP funds are collected from the State gas tax and are allocated for maintenance, reconstruction, or construction of city streets. 

The City of Paducah maintains approximately 220 miles of streets.  If you have a question, please call the Engineering-Public Works Department at 270-444-8511.
