BoydImprovements 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 at Cannonsburg past the KY 538 intersection to Johnda Drive on the Catlettsburg side.

The public should expect delays with lane closures controlled by flaggers for ditching and pipe replacements. Contractors will replace pipes half at a time to avoid complete closures. However, some full road closures will be required and will be announced. Motorists should watch message boards and signs for traffic announcements.

-- Outbound (west) US 62 traffic heading away from downtown will transition into one lane prior to Moody Drive, and remain in that one lane past the AA Highway intersection. A center turn lane will be available for left turns. Right-turning traffic will not be affected.

-- On the AA Highway, left-turning traffic approaching the US 62 intersection will be limited to one left-turn lane only. The right two lanes will be for through traffic and right-turning traffic. Lanes will be marked.
