BoydStops signs replace Catlettsburg signal
The traffic signal on KY 3294 at 26th Street in downtown Catlettsburg has been deactivated, and the intersection switched to a four-way stop condition. The signal has been placed on red flash in all directions for 90 days before being removed in order to help drivers adjust to the traffic change.

Stop signs will control all traffic coming into the intersection along KY 3294 (Louisa and Center streets) and from 26th Street, with traffic required to stop before proceeding – each in turn.

Road Report
BoydPossible Ashland bridge traffic impacts
 In Ashland, bridge traffic between US 23 downtown to US 52 in Ohio could be affected by an Ohio Department of Transportation signal and lighting. Ohio officials say traffic is being maintained on U.S. 52 and on the bridges; however, lane restrictions will be in place at various intervals, with U.S. 52 reduced to one lane and traffic shifted to the shoulder of the roadway. Throughout the project, motorists may encounter intermittent periods of delay in the construction zone, particularly during peak travel times. All work is scheduled to be completed in late fall.
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.
Groundbreaking
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. All traffic on KY 57 just north of Flemingsburg has been shifted eastward onto a new section of highway at the construction site. 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.
