Traffic Advisory: US 60 to close west of Owingsville for culvert replacement
Wednesday through Friday morning, July 23-25
FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (July 14, 2014) – A culvert replacement project will require the temporary closure of US 60 west of Owingsville next week, Wednesday through Friday morning, July 23-25.
Kentucky Department of Highway crews have been constructing a new aluminum culvert to replace a deteriorated concrete structure under US 60 at Hurricane Creek. Beginning about 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, July 23, crews will cut through the roadway to remove the old structure, and then use a crane Thursday to set the new culvert in place.
During that time, US 60 will be closed to all traffic at the work site two and a half miles west of Owingsville – from the 4 to 5 mile markers, or approximately between North Stepstone Road and Bob-O-Link Drive east of the KY 1198 intersection. The roadway should reopen by Friday morning, July 25.
All through traffic on US 60 should detour using Interstate 64 via KY 36 at Owingsville and Exit 113 in Montgomery County.
Road work schedules are subject to change depending on weather conditions. Motorists are asked to heed all warning signs, slow down in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
