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.

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, 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.
Groundbreaking
GreenupAA Highway guardrail replacement
Motorists should watch for weekday lane closures along the AA Highway (KY 9 and KY 10) in northeast Kentucky this spring as contractors replace guardrail from Maysville to Greenup.

Currently, contractors are working sections of KY 10 in Greenup County between US 23 and Quincy. Due to equipment in the roadway, one lane of the highway will be closed where contractors are working. Traffic is being controlled by flaggers. Expect delays.
Road Report
MasonUS 62 repairs at Maysville
During initial construction, all traffic on US 62 – which was known as US 68 hill until the bypass opened – will be switched into one lane each direction with a center turn lane between the AA Highway and Moody Drive.

Beginning Monday, March 30, motorists should expect the following traffic changes to take place after morning rush hour:

-- Inbound (east) US 62 traffic heading down the hill toward downtown will transition into one lane near Kmart just prior to the AA Highway intersection. Once past the intersection, traffic will shift left onto newly-striped pavement, and remain in one lane until past Moody Drive. A center turn lane will be available for left turns, and right-turning traffic will be able to cross the work zone at designated areas when construction is not taking place.

-- 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.

Work will continue through early August. Follow http://twitter.com/US62Maysville or search @US62Maysville on Twitter for updated traffic changes.
