“Hinkle Construction Services Awarded KY92W Realignment Project”
Hinkle Construction Services (HCS) is pleased to announce it has been awarded the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s KY 92W Realignment Project. This project includes realignment of a section of KY 92W from the intersection of KY 592 in McCreary County extending east of the intersection of Old Jellico Creek Road in Whitley County.
HCS’s Shane Mattox will be the project manager for the KY 92W Realignment project. Production began in late October; expected completion will be in March, 2021.
The $39.2 M project will include construction of a new section of roadway, transfer of traffic to the new road, and excavation of the old road. As part of this mass excavation, the company will utilize Caterpillar 77 trucks and Caterpillar 992 loaders, as well as numerous other related pieces of equipment. Once construction of the new road is completed, traffic will be transferred over and the old road will be excavated.
“The existing section of KY 92W from the intersection of KY 592 in McCreary County into the intersection of Old Jellico Creek Road in Whitley County is a dangerous stretch of roadway. The realignment will greatly improve the safety and functionality of that area’s infrastructure,” HCS Executive Vice President Chad Conley said.
The date, time and duration of work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur. Motorists can access travel and traffic conditions at http://goky.ky.gov.
