LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 23, 2015) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Department of Highways, announces that this advisory serves as an update for the US 60/Lexington Avenue project in Clark County.


  • the first phase of pavement removal/replacement between Maryland Avenue and Breeze Hill Drive is nearing completion

o   at this point the area is tentatively scheduled to be reopened to a normal traffic configuration on Thursday (06/25) afternoon


  • pavement removal/replacement operations will then shift to the section between Hays Street and Maryland Avenue


  • tentatively, on Thursday (06/25) afternoon, Lexington Avenue will become one-way to the east (toward town) from Maryland Avenue to Maple Street


  • once pavement removal/replacement is complete between Hays and Maryland Avenue the section will be reopened to a normal configuration

o   at that time traffic will continue to be one-way to the east (toward town) from Hays Street to Maple Street until that section is complete


  • as traffic is currently one-way to the east, westbound traffic on US 60 will be detoured around Maple Street, Boone Avenue, Belmont Avenue and the Bypass
  • signage will be in place to alert the traveling public


  • work will continue during this time for entrances and sidewalk between Maryland Avenue and Maple Street


Note:  the project is on schedule to have all one-way phasing completed prior to Clark
