ROAD CONTRACT
Highway contract awarded to upgrade stretch of parkway in western Kentucky

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Gov. Steve Beshear says a highway contract has been awarded to make improvements needed to bring a portion of the Pennyrile Parkway up to interstate standards in western Kentucky.

Beshear said Tuesday the contract is another step toward the goal of an Interstate 69 corridor from the Ohio River to the Tennessee border.

State officials say the new project will result in improvements to a 36.4-mile stretch of the parkway in Hopkins, Webster and Henderson counties.

Hall Contracting of Kentucky Inc. was awarded the contract on a low bid of $11.93 million.

The contract has a completion date of Aug. 1, 2015.

Once complete, I-69 in Kentucky will run north from Henderson to the Tennessee border at Fulton.

Completion of the corridor requires improvements to portions of three Kentucky parkways.
