|Boyd||Improvements on KY 3294 Cannonsburg Road|
A 5-mile highway safety improvement project on KY 3294 Cannonsburg Road includes not only removal of trees near the state highway, but also guardrail work, shoulder repairs, replacement of more than two dozen drainage pipes and culverts, and blacktop patching along KY 3294 from Adams Drive near Cannonsburg past the KY 538 intersection to Johnda Drive.
Tree cutting and other work will require intermittent lane closures with traffic controlled by flaggers this winter. Expect delays. Other traffic impacts will be announced as work progresses throughout the winter and next spring.
|Boyd||Boy Scout Road, Valley View Drive closure|
The City of Ashland has notified the Kentucky Department of Highways that it has temporarily closed Boy Scout Road (KY 1012) and KY 168 (Valley View Drive) to through traffic:
-- Boy Scout Road is closed between Wildwood and Greenbriar roads, while KY 168 is closed between Hurricane Creek and Belmont Street to allow location of temporary water lines across the road to restore water service.
The closure will remain in effect until further notice. Boy Scout Road motorists may use US 60 and Blackburn Avenue to reroute. Motorists using KY 168 may reroute using US 23 and 55th Street, or other local routes.

Beginning the week of March 2, motorists should expect one-lane traffic on Blackburn Avenue (KY 168) at the Pollard-Kirk Street intersection as Columbia Gas of Kentucky will be working to repair lines.
Traffic will be controlled by flaggers during work days for the next two to three weeks. Motorists should also note that detours are possible on Pollard Road during construction. All lanes will reopen at the end of each work day, with no overnight traffic restrictions.
|Elliott||KY 7 reconstruction in Elliott County|
As part of a $26.5 million road improvement project in Elliott County, five miles of KY 7 is being rebuilt from just north of KY 706 to the Elliott-Carter county line. Motorists should expect possible lane closures, lane shifts, flagged traffic and other impacts, and should be mindful of trucks or other heavy equipment entering and leaving the highway in that area throughout the winter.
Motorists should expect rough pavement on existing KY 7 in some areas, especially near Hilltop.
