Construction is continuing on the extension of the Flemingsburg Bypass, and includes traffic changes at the end of the current bypass at the KY 11 intersection where traffic is being maintained currently as a three-way stop. A stop condition for all Cherry Grove Road (KY 597) traffic is also now in place - and will remain after construction is finished.
