|Bath||Work zone: I-64 in Montgomery and Bath counties|
An Interstate 64 rehabilitation project is taking place between the 112 and 118 mile markers in Montgomery and Bath Counties. Initial work involves fence replacement and brush removal, with minimal impact to traffic outside of shoulder and intermittent lane closures. Paving will follow this spring or summer, with full lane closures. The project is expected to be complete by July 31, 2014.
|Carter||KY 773 closed overnight near Grayson for bridge repairs|
An overnight closure of the easternmost KY 773 crossing of the Little Sandy River in Carter County will be required April 23-24 to finish concrete surface patching on the structure.
Early April 23, Kentucky Department of Highways crews closed both of KY 773's Little Sandy bridges near Grayson for the repairs, as well as inspections, with the intent of reopening the bridges at 4 p.m. But, more concrete patching than anticipated is required on the KY 773 bridge closest to KY 1, necessitating its closure through 4 p.m. Thursday to allow enough time for the concrete to set. The westernmost bridge closest to KY 7 will reopen at 4 p.m. today, and close again on Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., for repairs.
During the bridge closures, motorists using KY 773 – which serves approximately 1,900 vehicles a day – must detour using KY 7 and KY 1 through Grayson, or other local routes.
|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 and other impacts, and should be mindful of trucks or other heavy equipment entering and leaving the highway in that area.
|Fleming||Flemingsburg Bypass construction at KY 11, Cherry Grove Road, KY 57|
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. In addition, please watch for construction vehicles and possible flagged traffic conditions where the new bypass intersects Cherry Grove Road (KY 597) as well as at the KY 57 terminus.
|Greenup||AA paving, widening in Greenup County|
Paving and widening is under way along four miles of the AA Highway from KY 7 near Beechy past the US 23 intersection to the Greenup Locks and Dam crossing at the Ohio River. Contractors plan to start the road-widening and turn lanes first, with traffic impacts beginning Monday, March 31, between US 23 and the dam.
Two-way traffic will be maintained during construction, but travel will be shifted off existing lanes. Motorists should be prepared for intermittent lane closures and backups over the next two weeks as contractors prepare the traffic shift. Motorists should also watch for frequent traffic changes in the area, heed all flaggers and warning signs, and slow down to protect both themselves – the majority of work zone crashes injure drivers – and construction workers. Spped limit is 45 mile sper hour in the work zone.
|Greenup||Construction along 29 miles of US 23 in Greenup County|
Construction of paved shoulders and turn lanes at multiple intersections along US 23 in Greenup County has restarted. Motorists should expect one-lane work zones and flaggers in various locations along 29 miles of the four-lane highway from the Boyd County line at Russell to South Shore. Delays are possible during daytime work hours.
|Mason||Bridge work to close KY 419 in Mason on Thursday, Friday|
Bridge repairs by the Kentucky Department Highways will require daytime closures of KY 419 at its Licking River crossing in Mason County on Thursday and Friday, April 24-25. Crews will close the KY 419 bridge at the 2.7 mile marker west of Lewisburg between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day to patch concrete pavement. All traffic should detour using KY 11 and KY 324, or local routes.
|Nicholas||KY 386 bridge over McBride Creek|
Beginning the week of March 17, contractors will remove deteriorated concrete from the surface of the KY 386 bridge over McBride Creek and replace it with a new concrete overlay. The work will require the bridge to be restricted to one lane, with traffic controlled by temporary signals, through April or until the project is complete.
