More than 80 attend second public meeting for KY 7 improvements in Elliott and Morgan Counties
 
FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (April 22, 2015) – A second public meeting for a KY 7 highway improvement project in Elliott and Morgan counties drew more than 80 participants last week.
 
At the meeting, engineers and project team leaders discussed the project – the proposed reconstruction 10 miles of KY 7 from the southern city limits of Sandy Hook to the KY 711 intersection at Wrigley in Morgan County – and took public comments. Comments are accepted at public meetings, and 15 days afterward:

PREVIOUS INFORMATION
 
FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (May 13, 2013) – Motorists should watch for changing traffic patterns on KY 11 at the new Flemingsburg Bypass intersection in the coming weeks as construction moves to different parts of the intersection.
 
Currently, the traffic signal has been removed and motorists approaching from all three directions – on the existing bypass, on KY 11 from Maysville and on KY 32 from downtown Flemingsburg – must stop at the intersection where traffic is configured as a three-way stop.
 
That stop condition will remain in place, but by next week, or sooner depending on weather, some traffic will shift to newly-constructed travel lanes. Motorists should reduce speeds and stay within marked lanes, heed all warning signs and remain alert for future changes in the work zone.
 
Construction of the $8.6 million Flemingsburg Bypass extension began earlier this spring. Once complete, it will include a new two-lane roadway over two miles of open country from the existing bypass intersection at KY 11 north of Flemingsburg across Cherry Grove Road (KY 597) to KY 57 at Sleepy Run Creek.
 
The project will improve safety and reduce congestion through downtown Flemingsburg by providing an alternate travel route for commercial and through traffic using KY 11 and KY 57. It also features center turning lanes along much of the new route, as well as intersection upgrades at existing highways.
