|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.
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.
|Fleming||New north section Flemingsburg Bypass open|
Traffis is flowing across the new northern section of the Flemingsburg Bypass (KY 57), with traffic changes on KY 11 and KY 57:
Watch for a fully operational traffic signal at the KY 11-Maysville Road intersection; while at the old KY 57 intersection in the Sleepy Run area, traffic from Mount Carmel-Tollesboro will continue straight and traffic heading to downtown must make a left-turn. Traffic on old KY 57 from downtown will have stop signs at the new bypass. Traffic on KY 597 (Cherry Grove Road) must stop and yield to bypass traffic. Motorists should slow down, watch for directional signs and remember that the area will remain an active work zone for several more weeks.

|Greenup||KY 67 one lane for bridge repairs|
In Greenup County, bridge repairs are under way on the Industrial Parkway (KY 67) at Culp Creek between Lost Lick Road and Pleasant Valley Road. Traffic is one lane controlled by temporary signals.
|Rowan||Traffic changes KY 32 at Christy, US 60 at Hayes Crossing|
In Rowan County, all KY 32 traffic has been shifted onto new pavement to bypass the Seas Branch bridge work site about 3.5 miles west of the KY 504 intersection. This diversionary route has been built to limit traffic being stopped for bridge demolition and reconstruction. It will remain in place until the $907,000 bridge replacement project is complete.
On US 60 near Haye's Crossing, another bridge replacement project could impact traffic on the highway. Watch for lane closures, diversion routes and detours.
Motorists should remain watchful for construction equipment and changes in the work zone, and should note that the speed limit on KY 32 has been reduced to 35 miles per hour through that area.
