 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!

Description
Bath
Paving is continuing on I-64 in Bath County, 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.
Boyd
The traffic signal on KY 3294 at 26th Street in downtown Catlettsburg has been deactivated, and the intersection switched to a four-way stop condition. The signal has been placed on red flash in all directions for 90 days before being removed in order to help drivers adjust to the traffic change.

Stop signs will control all traffic coming into the intersection along KY 3294 (Louisa and Center streets) and from 26th Street, with traffic required to stop before proceeding – each in turn.
Boyd
KY 3 is one-lane near Spurlock Hill, which is about three miles from the US 23 intersection. Traffic is being controlled by temporary signals. Slide repairs are in progress.
Boyd
 In Ashland, bridge traffic between US 23 downtown to US 52 in Ohio could be affected by an Ohio Department of Transportation signal and lighting. Ohio officials say traffic is being maintained on U.S. 52 and on the bridges; however, lane restrictions will be in place at various intervals, with U.S. 52 reduced to one lane and traffic shifted to the shoulder of the roadway. Throughout the project, motorists may encounter intermittent periods of delay in the construction zone, particularly during peak travel times. All work is scheduled to be completed in late fall.
Elliott
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.
Fleming
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. All traffic on KY 57 just north of Flemingsburg has been shifted eastward onto a new section of highway at the construction site. 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.
Greenup
Repairs are under way 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.
Mason
Contractors are resurfacing nine miles of KY 11 in Mason County ... Work is finished between the KY 1448 intersection and its junction with US 62 downtown. Paving work is continuing along six miles of the highway from the Fleming County line north to the KY 419 intersection. As of Oct. 3, the majority of thru lanes had been paved, but shoulders must also be paved. During work, expect one-lane flagged traffic. Motorists should expect delays, especially during peak travel times, and watch message boards for traffic information.
Rowan
All KY 32 traffic has been shifted 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.
