The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet awarded Hall contracting14.5 million dollars for major pavement work on Dixie Hwy (31W) between Stonegate Manor Drive and Greenwood Road. 

According to Wave3 news channel, "Major construction was to begin south of the Gene Snyder Freeway between Stonegate Manor Drive and Bethany Lane (north of the Snyder). Construction was supposed to proceed north in four segments as the project is completed.

The four sections were to be completed as follows, Dixie Hwy between Bethany Lane to Valley Station Road, Valley Station Road to West Pages Lane and then from West Pages Lane to Greenwood Road.The entire project was to be completed by the end of the summer 2016". 

As of July 2017, the construction has yet to be completed, 31W is in total chaos. Driving on Dixie Highway between Bethany Lane and Valley Station Road is much like driving in a war torn county. It appears that our elected councilmen, KYDOT, Mayor Fischer, State and Federal Representatives have no clue to the amount of impact this 14.5 million dollar project has on the local community. 

31W is known as one of the most dangerous roads in America. Deaths occur on this highway quite frequently. For our local citizens, driving through this already dangerous portion of 31W in the current state as it is in, places the citizens of Valley Station and surrounding communities at a much greater risk of accidents.

The people of 40272 come together to fight the bureaucracy that is keeping this project from being completed. The lack of emphasis placed on this 14.5 million dollar project is reflects greatly on our elected officials.

We ask that you keep workers on the job site, no more work stoppages, or delays in the project.  We ask for daily progress to be made. If further delays are occur with this project, We the citizens ask KYDOT to place Hall contracting and construction on a do not bid list for further city and state projects.
