On Wednesday, January 30, 2013, at 7:30 a.m., Ottawa, Hiawatha and a section of Louisville Avenues and Dakota Street will be closed to prepare for the construction of the North Connector (second phase) of the three-phase Crittenden Drive Relocation Project. Roadway signs alerting frequent travelers and nearby neighbors of the road closures were posted on Wednesday, January 9.
Relocating the roadway allows for the continued construction of Taxiway “A”, a crucial airfield improvement, which permits the airport to handle the newest, largest long-range commercial aircraft. The almost $6 million construction contract for the North Connector phase of the project was awarded to Louisville Paving by the Airport Authority Board at its November 28, 2012, meeting and is funded by the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
