New section of U.S. 127 in Clinton County to be opened Oct. 14
SOMERSET, Ky. (Oct.10, 2013) – A new section of the U.S. 127 in Clinton County and US 127 and TN 111 in Pickett County, TN is scheduled to open Monday, Oct. 14.
The newly constructed portion of U.S. 127 will be opened just north of the Kentucky-Tennessee state line extending approximately 1 mile south, and connecting to TN 111. The remaining portion of the new U.S. 127, which is still under construction and extends just north of this change, is scheduled to be opened this fall.
The opening of this new section changes the traffic movements at the intersection near the state line. It will now require northbound US 127 traffic to stop and then make a left turn onto TN 111 or right turn onto US 127 North. TN 111 traffic traveling north toward Albany and US 127 southbound traffic traveling to TN 111 will no longer stop, as that is the through movements. Southbound US 127 will be required to yield before turning left.
KY 1076 will be accessible from US 127 just south of the state line.
The public is urged to use caution in these areas as drivers get accustomed to new traffic conditions.
