  5. Pay attention to the signs.
  6. Obey road crew flaggers.
  7. Stay alert and minimize distractions.

  9. Schedule enough time and call 511 or go to www.511.ky.gov for Kentucky traffic and travel information or follow KYTCDistrict6 our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/KYTC.District6.  Knowing where the construction zones are prior to the trip can minimize frustration and delays.
