 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
Beginning July 14, CSX Transportation will close the KY 3294 (36th Street/Oakland Avenue) railroad crossing at US 23 in Catlettsburg for repairs. All traffic should reroute using US 23 and US 60 during the closure.

Motorists should also watch for message boards, signs warning of other closures at railroad crossings in the Catlettsburg area for approximately the next two weeks.
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, please watch for construction vehicles and possible flagged traffic conditions where the new bypass ends at the KY 57 terminus.
Fleming
The following work and traffic changes are taking place in Fleming County:

-- On KY 57 north of Flemingsburg, from Sleepy Run bridge to Logan Run Creek bridge, contractors are working on hillside embankments, making pipe replacements and roadside slope corrections. Expect lane and road closures through September.

-- A bridge on KY 111 at Grange City that crosses Fox Creek will be one lane with temporary traffic signals for the next month.

-- A bridge on KY 158 at Ringo’s Mill that crosses Fox Creek will be one lane with temporary traffic signals for the next month.
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
from 6 p.m. Friday, July 25, until 6 a.m. Monday, July 28, KY 57 north of Flemingsburg will be closed to all traffic for culvert installations. During that time, the road will be closed from approximately 750 feet south of Maddox Pike north to the bridge over Logan Run.

All thru traffic, commercial vehicles and trucks with trailers on KY 57 should detour using KY 11 and the AA Highway. Local residents may access locations up to the area of the closure – and local route connections to KY 597, KY 3301 and KY 559 into Flemingsburg will be available.
Greenup
Paving and widening is under way along the AA Highway (KY 10) in Greenup County:

-- Currently, four miles of the AA Highway from KY 7 near Beechy past the US 23 intersection to the Greenup Locks and Dam crossing at the Ohio River is under construction. Contractors are widening the road and installing turn lanes first, with traffic impacts now between US 23 and the dam. Two-way traffic will be maintained during construction, but travel will be shifted off existing lanes. Motorists should watch for frequent traffic changes in the area, heed all flaggers and warning signs, and slow down to protect both themselves – the majority of work zone crashes injure drivers – and construction workers. Spped limit is 45 mile sper hour in the work zone.
Rowan
Motorists should watch for traffic changes on the Morehead connector beginning the week of July 28... A mile and a half of KY 32 from approximately Big Four Street to Mabry Drive – the hillside cut section between the Lewis Place shopping center and downtown – will be blacktopped. Motorists should expect one-lane traffic on both the eastbound and westbound sides of the highway during construction. Delays are possible, especially during peak rush hour traffic times.
