FlemingKY 11 Flemingsburg Bypass repairs
Contractors are rebuilding part of the older section of the Flemingsburg Bypass between the Maysville Road-West Water Street intersection north of downtown past the hospital and Elizaville Road area to the KY 11 Business (Mt.

Watch for one lane traffic, controlled by flaggers. The speed limit along that section of bypass has been reduced to 45 MPH for the duration of the construction project, and is being patrolled by law enforcement.

During the painting and closure of the Carl Perkins Bridge in Greenup County - until Nov. 15 - all standard traffic between Kentucky and Ohio will be detoured across the US 23-U.S. Grant Bridge (the nearby cable-stayed bridge to downtown Portsmouth) along these routes:

Traffic Changes - In Kentucky

-- Traffic on KY 8 East or US 23 North: Cars and commercial trucks should follow US 23 North across the Grant bridge, then either turn left on Second Street to access Ohio 73 to West Portsmouth-Hillsboro and US 52 West toward Cincinnati or veer right to stay on US 23 North (Gay Street) toward Columbus or to access US 52 East toward Ironton.

Traffic Changes - In Ohio

-- Traffic on US 23 South or US 52 West coming from Columbus or Ironton: Cars should follow existing signs for US 23 South (Washington Street) to the Grant bridge; commercial trucks should use the existing US 23 Truck Route, follow existing “Kentucky” signs, then detour via Ohio 73 East to Second Street to the Grant bridge.

-- Traffic on US 52 East, Ohio 73 or Ohio 104 coming from Cincinnati, Hillsboro or West Portsmouth: Follow existing “Kentucky” signs or US 23 Truck Route signs to detour via Ohio 73 East to Second Street to the Grant bridge.

-- Oversize vehicles/loads are being rerouted along US 23 to I-64 and then through West Huntington, W.Va., to cross into Ohio on US 52.

Detour routes are subject to change if floodwater affects Ohio 73 off ramps. All thru traffic and commercial vehicles should avoid Chillicothe Street (Business US 23) in Portsmouth due to brick pavement and narrow lanes.

Road Report
MasonUS 62 repairs at Maysville
US 62 at Maysville – formerly known as US 68 hill – is being reconstructed, and all traffic is one lane each direction between the AA Highway and Moody Drive.
 
Currently, final surface paving is taking place, with varied traffic patterns and lane shifts. Motorists should watch signs and message boards, and expect delays. All US 62 traffic is in the following pattern:
 
-- Inbound (east) US 62 traffic heading downtown: Left lane closed near the AA Highway intersection, with traffic shifted right into one lane past Moody Drive.
 
-- Outbound (west) US 62 traffic heading away from downtown: Left lane closed prior to Moody Drive, with traffic shifted right into one lane past the AA Highway intersection.
  
Because as many as 17,000 vehicles travel US 62 at Maysville each day and left turns will be restricted, slow traffic and delays are likely during this phase of the project. Motorists should plan travel accordingly.

Work will continue through August. For full details, see http://bit.ly/US62Rebuild online. Follow http://twitter.com/US62Maysville or search @US62Maysville on Twitter for traffic updates.

Road Report
RowanKY 32 rehab at Park Hills
Motorists should expect lane closures and delays along 2.3 miles of KY 32 north of Morehead between the Fleming County line and the Park Hills Drive as contractors have begun major widening and paving of the highway in that area.

Since the highway serves approximately 4,000 to 9,000 vehicles per day in the area, traffic backups and delays are expected. Motorists should allow extra time and plan travel accordingly. In addition, due to the depth of paving, some entrances and side streets may be blocked for a period of time. Motorists should heed flagger instructions.
News Release
