Initial Work Begins This Weekend On Kentucky 54 Widening Project In Owensboro


OWENSBORO (07/08/24) – Work is scheduled to begin this weekend in Owensboro to widen a section of Kentucky Highway 54 near the intersection with the U.S. 60 Bypass. Starting Sunday night, crews will begin repainting lines to accommodate shifting both eastbound lanes of 54, using the existing turning lane for eastbound travel. This will allow construction of a third driving lane to begin on the south side of the highway. The full project is slated for completion by late 20256. Transportation officials estimate 32-thousand vehicles use the section of road daily to access the retail areas south of the Bypass.
