-- Traffic will not be able to access US 60 from KY 716, or access KY 716 from US 60 during construction.

-- Motorists needing access to KY 716 in the Armco Park area or to the federal prison may detour using KY 3292 (Roberts Drive) and KY 766 (Bob McCullough Drive). Detour will be marked. The Summit Road intersection west of the work area near Boyd County Middle School will not be affected.

Road Report
GreenupCarl Perkins bridge closed at Portsmouth
During the painting and closure of the Carl Perkins Bridge in Greenup County - until Nov. 15 - all traffic between Kentucky and Ohio will be detoured across the US 23-U.S. Grant Bridge (the nearby cable-stayed bridge to downtown Portsmouth) along these routes:

Traffic Changes - In Kentucky

-- Traffic on KY 8 East or US 23 North: Cars and commercial trucks should follow US 23 North across the Grant bridge, then either turn left on Second Street to access Ohio 73 to West Portsmouth-Hillsboro and US 52 West toward Cincinnati or veer right to stay on US 23 North (Gay Street) toward Columbus or to access US 52 East toward Ironton.

Traffic Changes - In Ohio

-- Traffic on US 23 South or US 52 West coming from Columbus or Ironton: Cars should follow existing signs for US 23 South (Washington Street) to the Grant bridge; commercial trucks should use the existing US 23 Truck Route, follow existing “Kentucky” signs, then detour via Ohio 73 East to Second Street to the Grant bridge.

-- Traffic on US 52 East, Ohio 73 or Ohio 104 coming from Cincinnati, Hillsboro or West Portsmouth: Follow existing “Kentucky” signs or US 23 Truck Route signs to detour via Ohio 73 East to Second Street to the Grant bridge.

Detour routes are subject to change if floodwater affects Ohio 73 off ramps. All thru traffic and commercial vehicles should avoid Chillicothe Street (Business US 23) in Portsmouth due to brick pavement and narrow lanes.
