 GET INVOLVED: Stand Out for Work Zone Safety!


​Work zones are about more than just the crews and contractors who work there ... What happens in them impacts the lives of families, and entire communities.

You can "stand out" for our dads and moms, coaches, pastors, community leaders, and others who are in our work zones! Dress in fluourescent yellow or other bright colors, and submit a photo of support to KYTC.District9Info@Ky.Gov or post to our Facebook Page, or LEARN MORE!

All photos will be posted to our public Flickr Group -- To show the world that we should keep workers - and ourselves - safe by slowing down and reducing distractions in all work zones!

 Current Work Zones

Motorists should watch for temporary daytime closures of Buchanan Road (KY 681)  in Fleming County next week for embankment repairs.

Work to install T-rail at the site of an embankment slip will start Monday, Nov. 30, on Buchanan Road about three fourths of a mile north of the KY 32 intersection. Construction will require Buchanan Road to be closed at the work site during daytime working hours, approximately 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for about eight days. The roadway will reopen evenings and weekends. During closures, motorists may detour using local routes.
Contractors are rebuilding KY 1722 at the 9 mile marker where a slip has undermined surface pavement. Repairs include full excavation of the roadway, stabilization of the embankment, installation of new drainage measures and other work – all of which will require temporary closure of the highway.
The road will be closed at the work site through early December. A detour has been posted, which includes using KY 111 through Hillsboro in Fleming County:
-        Motorists on the Fleming County side of the work site needing access to KY 1722 in Rowan County or KY 801 should take KY 111 at Grange City to KY 158 east to KY 801 south.
-        Motorists on the Rowan County side of the work site needing access to KY 1722 in Fleming County should take KY 801 north to KY 158 to Hillsboro, then use KY 111 to return to KY 1722 at Grange City.
