 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.
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. Occasional side street intersection closures. All traffic restricted to 8-foot wide loads through Nov. 30.

-- KY 10 @ AA Highway (KY 9) intersection leading to Germantown will remain closed through early next week, the week of Nov. 7. Detour via KY 435.

-- Barrett Pike @ AA Highway (KY 9) intersection will remain closed on south side of AA Highway until about the week of Nov. 14. Detour via US 62 and Clarks Run Road.

-- Barry Road @ AA Highway (KY 9) intersection will close beginning Friday, Nov. 4, and continuing until about the week of Nov. 14. Detour via Slack Pike or other routes.
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 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5, until Friday, Dec. 9 to connect sections of rebuilt highway throughout the area. Traffic control:

-- Motorists accessing homes/businesses on Holland Dr. and north of Holland Dr. 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 Holland Dr. (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.
Mason
Maple Leaf Road (KY 1448) in Maysville will be closed at Hollan Circle and restricted to local traffic only next week while contractors join sections of new pavement across the existing highway.

The work is part of an ongoing $6 million Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reconstruction project. About 1.5 miles of Maple Lead Road is being rebuilt between US 62 and the AA Highway. Since spring, contractors have maintained traffic along the existing highway while constructing the new highway on either side.

The next step is to join each section of new roadway by paving across Maple Leaf Road’s existing travel lanes, which will require the road to be closed to all thru traffic for several days.

Beginning Monday, Dec. 5, and continuing through Friday, Dec. 9, Maple Leaf Road will be closed at Hollan Circle. Motorists should note the following detours:

-- Motorists who need to reach homes or businesses on Hollan Circle or between the US 62 intersection and Hollan Circle will need to access Maple Leaf Road from the US 62 end. This includes schools access.

-- Motorists who need to reach homes or businesses between the AA Highway intersection and Hollan Circle will need to access Maple Leaf Road from the AA end.

-- A short, temporary gravel roadway will be used 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.
Rowan
Repairs to a culvert on KY 32 at milepoint 16.2 between Stegall Road and KY 3317 (CCC Trail) will mean temporary closures on Tuesday, Dec. 6: New high-density plastic piping will be installed within the existing structure, and grouted into place. Construction will require lane closures and stopping all traffic for up to 20 minutes at various times between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. that day.

Crews will make accommodations for emergency vehicle traffic, but all other traffic should seek alternate routes or be prepared for long waits at the work site. (Local traffic may use KY 3317 to reroute to and from Elliottville and Morehead, but that detour is not suitable for commercial or large vehicle traffic.)
