 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
A 5-mile highway safety improvement project on KY 3294 Cannonsburg Road includes not only removal of trees near the state highway, but also guardrail work, shoulder repairs, replacement of more than two dozen drainage pipes and culverts, and blacktop patching along KY 3294 from Adams Drive near Cannonsburg past the KY 538 intersection to Johnda Drive.

Tree cutting and other work will require intermittent lane closures with traffic controlled by flaggers this winter. Expect delays. Other traffic impacts will be announced as work progresses throughout the winter and next spring.
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, flagged traffic and other impacts, and should be mindful of trucks or other heavy equipment entering and leaving the highway in that area throughout the winter.

Motorists should expect rough pavement on existing KY 7 in some areas, especially near Hilltop.
Rowan
In Rowan County, on US 60 at May Road near Haye's Crossing, all US 60 traffic has been shifted north onto a temporary diversion route adjacent to a bridge as work to replace it takes place. Watch for traffic impacts and possible lane closures until work is complete.

Motorists should remain watchful for construction equipment and changes in the work zone, and should note that the speed limits might be reduced.
