Road project near Fort Campbell almost done

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A long-running road project on Interstate 24 near Fort Campbell is coming to an end.

The Leaf-Chronicle of Clarksville reports that finishing work on the stretch between exits 86 and 93 in Christian County, Ky., are underway, and the project is expected to be completed within the next few days.

The contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet on Saturday reopened the northbound ramps at Fort Campbell Boulevard, about seven miles north of the Tennessee state line.

The $14 million improvement project began in April. It included paving, erosion repairs, drainage improvements and guardrail upgrades. Further improvements along ramps that were not part of this project are still planned.

Clarksville resident Nick Horn, who commutes to work at Fort Campbell, says it will be a relief to have the road work finished.
