Date of release: October 27, 2017
Beginning Monday, October 30, a contractor will be completing the final milling and paving projects for the calendar year in Paducah. The work will take a few days to complete, weather-permitting.
Broadway between 9th and 13th Streets will be milled and then paved. Also, Harrison Street from North 9th Street to North 10th Street and North 9th Street from Martin Luther King Jr Drive to Harrison Street will be paved.
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 affected streets that typically allow curbside parking.
These street rehabilitation projects are 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.
