Road Report
ElliottKY 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.

In addition, contractors are working to finish excavation at Hilltop and in other areas close to the existing highway so it can be repaired before winter. That work has required intermittent road closures, which will continue for the next several weeks. Motorists should expect rough pavement until repairs are complete.

FlemingFlemingsburg 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. A stop condition for all Cherry Grove Road (KY 597) traffic is also now in place - and will remain after construction is finished.

In addition, work is continuing along KY 57 north of downtown Flemingsburg in the Sleepy Run area to remove a hillside and straighten the highway’s connection to the new Flemingsburg bypass. Beginning Friday morning, traffic on KY 57 just north of Flemingsburg will be shifted eastward onto a new section of highway at the construction site. Flaggers will direct traffic until concrete barriers and barrels are in place. Motorists should slow down through the area to safely negotiate the traffic changes, which will remain in place until the bypass is open later this fall.
