 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.

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

Contractors expect to begin travel restrictions Tuesday, Sept. 2, on I-64 with one-lane traffic east of the US 60 Owingsville exit between the 123 and 129 mile markers. Lane closures will continue until late October or early November, with the speed limit reduced to 55 miles per hour in the work zone.
In downtown Ashland, nighttime paving and concrete sidewalk repairs are continuing along two miles of Greenup Avenue (US 23) from the 7th Street-Winchester Avenue split north of downtown to the 32nd Street-Winchester split south. Work should finish by the end of the week, but lane closures remain possible nightly, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., as well as some possible daytime work zones. Paving work is not expected to start until later this month – after the Poage Landing Days festival.

Lane closures will be taken down during daytime hours, but travel may be on rough surfaces at times.
Road work is taking place along Interstate 64 in Carter County from mile markers 166 to 172, which is between the Gregoryville-Fultz Road overpass and the Grayson exit. Traffic will be reduced to one lane eastbound and westbound, and the speed limit will be reduced to 55 miles per hour in the work zone – a double-fine zone when workers are present. Motorists should heed all warning signs, watch for narrow lanes and drive carefully by remaining aware of workers and construction equipment at all times.
On Wednesday, Oct. 1, beginning about 8:30 a.m., state highway crews will close KY 182 at the 7.2 mile marker – about a mile from US 60 toward Grahn between Dry Fork Road and Blevins Road. Crews will cut through the roadway to install a new culvert pipe, then reopen KY 182 at approximately 4 p.m.

On Thursday, Oct. 2, crews will perform another culvert replacement at mile marker 8.0, which is a half mile south of US 60 toward Grahn between Blevins Road and Waugh Cemetery Road. The road will be closed 8:30 a.m. until approximately 4 p.m.

During the closures, motorists may use KY 3298 or local roads to reroute.
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.
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. Beginning Friday morning, traffic on KY 57 just north of Flemingsburg will be shifted eastward onto a new section of highway at the construction site. Flaggers will direct traffic until concrete barriers and barrels are in place. 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.
Contractors expect to begin repairs Monday, Sept. 15, on KY 8-US 23 Truck Route near South Portsmouth in Greenup County.

The work is part of a $702,000 Kentucky Transportation Cabinet improvement project being done under contract with Mountain Enterprises Inc. that includes patching and diamond grinding, or smoothing, of 1.3 miles of the four-lane highway’s concrete pavement between the Ohio River bridges leading to Portsmouth.

During repairs, traffic along that section of highway will be restricted to one lane in each direction inside work zones – day and night. Work is expected to take about a month to complete.
Contractors are resurfacing nine miles of KY 11 in Mason County ... Work is expected to start Wednesday, Sept. 17, on KY 11 in Maysville between the KY 1448 intersection and its junction with US 62 downtown. Eaton Asphalt Paving Co. Inc. was awarded a $1.55 million contract to mill up old asphalt and replace it with new blacktop on that three-mile section of KY 11, as well as six miles of the highway from the Fleming County line north to the KY 419 intersection.

During work, traffic on KY 11 will be one lane controlled by flaggers. Motorists should expect delays, especially during peak travel times, and watch message boards for traffic information.
Beginning Friday, contractors will shift all KY 32 traffic 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.

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.
