Although they basically told me to Quack off, they did respond which makes me happy.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet was asked to respond to your recent correspondence you sent to the Governor’s Office concerning construction work on I-65. We apologize for the delays associated with this work. The work you referenced is an important safety project to continue installation of cable barriers along the two lane sections of I-65. The Department of Highways strives to minimize impacts during construction work, while balancing the need for completing the projects in a safe and timely manner. For example, on this project, the contractor was restricted to only working Monday through Thursday, and was not allowed to work during the peak traffic time on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Also, closures of the inside lanes were only allowed for certain phases, such as pouring concrete for the barrier posts. Unfortunately, despite our efforts, there will always be situations/events that cause increases in traffic volumes or delays. We appreciate you bringing the annual music festivals in Tennessee to our attention, as we will be able to take these events into consideration for future work on I-65.
If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Patty Dunaway, Chief District Engineer at our District 4 Office in Elizabethtown at 270-766-5066.
