 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
Boyd
Concrete sidewalk repairs are continuing along two miles of Greenup Avenue (US 23) in Ashland, from the 7th Street-Winchester Avenue split north of downtown to the 32nd Street-Winchester split south. The work is part of a nighttime paving project that will continue through September. Lane closures along the four-lane highway are possible nightly, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., as well as some possible daytime work zones.

Lane closures will be taken down during daytime hours, but travel may be on rough surfaces at times.
Carter
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.
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.
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, contractors have been working alongside KY 57 in the Sleepy Run area to remove a hillside and straighten the highway’s connection to the new road. By the week of Sept. 1, contractors expect to shift KY 57 traffic onto a temporary route east of the existing highway, so that work can shift to the west side. Message boards and signs will mark the traffic change. Motorists should drive with caution, and slow down through the work zone.
Fleming
Repairs to Beechburg-Wallingford Road (KY 3301) in Fleming County, which will restrict the highway to light, local traffic only, have been postponed to mid-August. The new schedule will be announced as soon as possible.
Fleming
Work is continuing in Flemingsburg on KY 11X – also known as KY 11 Bus., or business route – from the KY 11 and KY 32-Flemingsburg Bypass intersection south of town near Pizza Hut to the KY 11-Flemingsburg Bypass intersection north of downtown near the country club. Specifically:

• State highway crews will make curbside drainage repairs to southbound KY 11X from just north of KY 2503 near the Dollar General to just south of the Railroad Street and East Electric Avenue intersection. Traffic will be one lane controlled by temporary signals from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each workday. All lanes will be open at night.

• Also, contractors will be making repairs on various sections of KY 11X between both Flemingsburg bypass intersections. Following that work, in late August or early September, paving will take place along the entire downtown route. Work zones will be one lane controlled by flaggers.
Fleming
A repair project along part of Beechburg-Wallingford Road (KY 3301) in Fleming County will restrict the highway to light, local traffic only beginning Tuesday, Sept. 2, from the 3.4 to 5 mile markers between the turn at Beechburg and a half mile past the Colgan Road intersection on the KY 559 (Wallingford) end.

KY 3301 will be closed to all thru traffic – especially heavier traffic such as log trucks, cement trucks or other commercial vehicles, as well as thin-railed metal wheels that could damage the road’s surface – beginning Sept. 2 for approximately 10 days. A detour using KY 57 and KY 559 to connect unaffected portions of KY 3301 will be marked for other traffic.
Greenup
Beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27, Lost Creek Road (KY 784) in southwest Greenup County will be closed at mile marker 5.5 between Harlow Hollow and Centerview Hill as state crews cut through the highway to replace a four-foot by six-foot, deteriorated concrete culvert. Due to culvert’s size, work will require the highway to remain closed overnight Wednesday and Thursday. The road is expected to reopen by Friday afternoon.

Local traffic will be permitted access up to the work site on either side. All other traffic should detour using KY 1 to Pactolus or KY 2 to Kehoe to connect with the AA Highway in Carter County.
Lewis
Paving on KY 57 from the Fleming-Lewis county line toward Tollesboro near the KY 1237 intersection is expected to start soon. Watch for one-lane traffic controlled by flaggers.
