Road work closures, lane changes on US 23, AA Highway, KY 207 in Greenup County
Week of April 14
FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (April 11, 2014) – Motorists in Greenup County can expect daytime closures of KY 207 as well as lane closures along US 23 and the AA Highway next week.
US 23 Paving
On Monday, April 14, contractors expect to begin paving operations along 29 miles of US 23 between Russell and South Shore. Work will occur on the roadway shoulder. However, US 23 will be reduced to one lane in work areas. In addition, intersection work at various locations will also restrict traffic.
The work is part of a more than $4 million Transportation Cabinet project awarded to Mountain Enterprises Inc. to improve Greenup County’s portion of US 23 with new paved shoulders and more than 30 additional turning lanes.
KY 207 Closure
Beginning Tuesday, April 15, Kentucky Department of Highways District 9 crews will make embankment repairs on KY 207 at the 4 mile marker between Dana Road and Freeman Cemetery Road – which is about five miles south of KY 1 and north of KY 3306.
The roadway will be closed during daytime work hours, Tuesday through Friday, and will reopen each evening. Motorists may detour using KY 1, KY 3306 or local routes.
AA Highway Work
Contractors are working to widen a mile of the AA Highway (KY 10) from the US 23 intersection to the Greenup Locks and Dam crossing at the Ohio River in order to add new left-turn lanes onto KY 3116 and an extended right-turn lane onto US 23 north.
Work taking place near the dam will cause intermittent one-lane traffic, and temporary delays next week. Motorists should watch for frequent traffic changes, heed all flaggers and warning signs, and slow down to protect both themselves – the majority of work zone crashes injure drivers – and construction workers.
