On Wednesday, Dec. 4, around noon, all four lanes of the new segment of KY 15 in Breathitt County will be opened to traffic and the crossovers at each end will be removed. In addition, the connection to old KY 15 will be opened and the closure that has been in place for several weeks will be removed.
Drivers are reminded that this is still an active work zone, and all posted speed limits should be obeyed. In addition, the surface that is currently on the road is a base coat of asphalt and is not the final surface. A smoother final surface will be applied in the spring.
