An 11-mile stretch of the highway from approximately exit 65 in Trigg County to mile point 76 in Christian County will ride like new, according to a release from the Transportation Cabinet.
“The process extends the life of the existing concrete pavement by about 10 years and raises it to the ride quality of a new surface,” the release said,
The diamond-cutting process that will be used grinds down the existing bumps, making the drivability closer to a new surface.
The project was slated at just over $5 million, with the contract going to Westgate Construction, of Hopkinsville. Work has already begun and is expected to continue through May 2006.
