 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!

Description
Carter
US 60 @ Stinson Road near Grayson, milepoint 26.1, construction until May 1, 2017:

-- Bridge replacement project has traffic shifted onto a diversionary route that will bypass the adjacent construction site just west of the old fairgrounds. Motorists should reduce speeds and heed curve warning signs while approaching the area.
Greenup
Work at the Greenup locks and dam will affect traffic across the Jesse Stuart Memorial Bridge (KY 10): Contractors will restrict bridge traffic to one lane beginning Monday, Jan. 23, and continue through at least Feb. 1, controlled using temporary signals, during daylight hours only. Schedules are subject to change depending on weather. Additional closures could occur later in February.

Heavy traffic across the bridge could create lengthy wait times at signals. A detour will not be marked, but motorists may seek alternate routes between Ohio and Kentucky using bridges at Ashland, Russell or Portsmouth, Ohio, to avoid the wait.
Mason
The AA Highway (KY 9) widening project in Mason County from US 68 north of Maysville to just north of KY 435 at Fernleaf is continuing:

-- AA Highway (KY 9) @ Maysville, milepoints 12.6-17.5, construction until May 1, 2017: Two-way traffic maintained for roadway widening, with speed limit reduced to 45 miles per hour, intermittent flagged traffic and travel lane shifts.

-- As of Dec. 7, 2016, contractors have shifted all traffic over to the most recently paved side – what will become the southbound side of the four-lane highway. All intersecting roads and intersections are open. The new traffic pattern will remain in place as construction continues throughout winter on the $18 million project to add another 5 miles of four-lane capacity to the AA Highway corridor at Maysville.
Mason
Contractors are working to widen and rebuild Maple Leaf Road (KY 1448) between US 62 and the AA Highway in Maysville:

-- KY 1448, Maple Leaf Road @ Maysville, milepoints 5.4-7, construction until early 2017: New road construction with intermittent flagged traffic and detours daily. Watch for shifting travel lanes and expect delays.

Temporary closure from 9 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, until Friday, Dec. 16 to connect sections of rebuilt highway throughout the area. Traffic control:

-- Motorists accessing homes/businesses on Hollan Circle and north of Hollan on Maple Leaf (US 62 end) will need to use US 62 and the north end of Maple Leaf to reach their destination.

-- Motorists accessing homes/businesses south of Hollan (AA end) will need to use the AA and the south end of Maple Leaf to reach their destination.

-- A short temporary gravel diversion will be used on the south end during this time to maintain traffic to Mefford Heights and the Maysville Nazarene Church.
Rowan
Contractors are working on a $10 million highway improvement project along KY 519 @ Cave Run Lake, from KY 801 to the bottom of Clack Mountain, milepoints 2.3-6, construction through the end of 2017:

New roadway being built adjacent to highway. Watch for intermittent flagged traffic, blasting and other impacts daily. Construction will continue throughout the year. Project completion is expected by the end of 2017.
