Dixie Highway Project completed on time, officials agree

If you live near Louisville or the Dixie Highway, you may have heard that the state officials have officially announced the completion of the Dixie Highway Project. This is probably good news if you've been caught up in construction or noticed an uptick in accidents as a result of work in the area. This project was designed to help repave areas of the highway and to prevent it from cracking in the future. The construction company, Hall Construction, met its deadline nearly three years after the project was awarded.

This $14 million project helps five miles of the Dixie Highway be a smoother ride for drivers. The span between Gene Snyder Freeway and Greenwood Road has had the roads completely ripped up and remade, adding a reflective membrane to prevent cracking and damage in the future. By reducing road hazards due to road damage, it's hoped that fewer people will end up in crashes along the highway.

There are still a few things that need to be added to the roadway, like pavement markings, stop bars and turn arrows. Additional ramp work and sidewalk construction will add to the highway, making it safer by bringing it up to federal standards.

There is a second paving project taking place on the highway between Greenwood and Watterson. This second portion is expected to be completed in 2019. Hopefully, with the combined efforts of these projects, the highway will be safer than it has been in the past. Simple changes could make a big difference in safety, as will getting construction equipment off the roads.
