Phase two of 31W work nears completion

Drivers on U.S. 31W are no stranger to orange barriers and yellow construction equipment, but their days are numbered. Phase two of the construction project, from Ring Road to the U.S. 31W Bypass, is slated for completion by the end of the month, and the remainder, from the bypass to St. John Road, is likely to be completed by the end of the year.

Construction on one phase of the Dixie Avenue project in Elizabethtown is winding down.

The section between Ring Road and U.S. 31W Bypass, phase II of the $13.54-million U.S. 31W Reconstruction Project, is slated for completion at the end of this month, according to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 4 spokesman Chris Jessie.
