|Carter||I-64 one lane 148-154 MM in Carter|
On I-64 in Carter County, all I-64 traffic eastbound and westbound is one lane between the 148 mile marker near the weigh station at the Carter-Rowan line and 154 mile marker near Olive Hill for roadside repairs and paving. Speed limit is 55 mph. Expect delays. Work is part of an $11 million repair and pavement rehab project that will continue into next year.
|Elliott||KY 7 reconstruction in Elliott County|
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.
Motorists should expect rough pavement on existing KY 7 in some areas, especially near Hilltop.
|Fleming||KY 560 closed until November in Fleming|
Work begins Sept. 8 for a bridge replacement on KY 560 over Johnson Creek near the Mason County line. The road will be closed until early November, with traffic detoured using US 68 and KY 165 through Ewing.
|Fleming||KY 3301 Beechburg Road restrictions|
Repairs on Beechburg Road (KY 3301) – a full-depth roadway reclamation – are expected to start Monday, Sept. 28, and will take place from the 0 to 3.4 mile markers on KY 3301, which is between the KY 57 intersection and the turn at Beechburg-Colgan Road.
Due to the extent of the repairs and the time needed for the cement to cure, KY 3301 will be closed to all through traffic – especially heavier traffic such as log trucks, cement trucks or other commercial vehicles – for a week or longer, from Sept. 28 through the first week of October.
During that time, the roadway will be open only to local cars, pickups and other light traffic, although delays are possible during construction. A detour using KY 559 and KY 57 will be marked for other traffic. Message boards will be used to communicate traffic changes.
|Greenup||Carl Perkins bridge closed at Portsmouth|
During the painting and closure of the Carl Perkins Bridge in Greenup County - until Nov. 15 - all standard traffic between Kentucky and Ohio will be detoured across the US 23-U.S. Grant Bridge (the nearby cable-stayed bridge to downtown Portsmouth) along these routes:
Traffic Changes - In Kentucky
-- Traffic on KY 8 East or US 23 North: Cars and commercial trucks should follow US 23 North across the Grant bridge, then either turn left on Second Street to access Ohio 73 to West Portsmouth-Hillsboro and US 52 West toward Cincinnati or veer right to stay on US 23 North (Gay Street) toward Columbus or to access US 52 East toward Ironton.
Traffic Changes - In Ohio
-- Traffic on US 23 South or US 52 West coming from Columbus or Ironton: Cars should follow existing signs for US 23 South (Washington Street) to the Grant bridge; commercial trucks should use the existing US 23 Truck Route, follow existing “Kentucky” signs, then detour via Ohio 73 East to Second Street to the Grant bridge.
-- Traffic on US 52 East, Ohio 73 or Ohio 104 coming from Cincinnati, Hillsboro or West Portsmouth: Follow existing “Kentucky” signs or US 23 Truck Route signs to detour via Ohio 73 East to Second Street to the Grant bridge.
-- Oversize vehicles/loads are being rerouted along US 23 to I-64 and then through West Huntington, W.Va., to cross into Ohio on US 52.
Detour routes are subject to change if floodwater affects Ohio 73 off ramps. All thru traffic and commercial vehicles should avoid Chillicothe Street (Business US 23) in Portsmouth due to brick pavement and narrow lanes.
|Greenup||Industrial Parkway repaving in Greenup County|
Work is under way on a $10 million highway improvement project that will mean 13 miles of new blacktop for the entire Industrial Parkway (KY 67) in Boyd, Carter and Greenup counties.
Crews are beginning at the I-64 end and working north toward the US 23 intersection – resurfacing all lanes of the Industrial Parkway. Paving work will take place 5 a.m. to midnight daily and will require one-lane traffic where crews are working. Motorists should heed flaggers, obey signs and follow pilot vehicles where appropriate. Expect delays.
|Lewis||One-lane bridges in Nicholas, Mason, Lewis|
Work to repair three bridges in Nicholas, Mason and Lewis counties began today, and will mean one-lane traffic for the next month at the following locations:
* KY 386 at Big Brushy Creek (mile marker 4.2) in Nicholas County
* KY 8 at Lawrence Creek (mile marker 7.1) west of US 68 and the William Harsha Bridge in Mason County
* KY 2523 over Salt Lick Creek at Vanceburg (mile marker 0.4) near the Lewis County schools complex
Traffic will be restricted at each location to one lane with traffic controlled by temporary signals. Work is expected to take about a month to complete. Motorists should expect delays during that time, especially at the KY 2523 bridge at Vanceburg due to its proximity to Lewis County middle and high schools and other intersections. Temporary signals there will be located on KY 2523 and KY 3037 to control traffic.
|Mason||US 68 paving in Mason County|
Motorists should watch for possible rough pavement on US 68 in Mason County between Washington and May's Lick as part of a resurfacing project. Paving operations and lane closures are expected to start in early October.
During work, motorists should slow down, heed flaggers and warning signs and expect delays.
|Nicholas||KY 32 at Myers in Nicholas County|
Contractors have been setting concrete beams in place for a $3 million project to build a new KY 32 bridge near Myers. Watch for traffic shifts on either side of the project area, as well as intermittent flagged traffic.
The new bridge is being built adjacent to the old steel truss crossing Scrubgrass Creek and TTI Railroad about five miles east of Carlisle, and includes straightening a section of adjoining highway. Once the new structure is complete, which is expected by November, the old bridge will be demolished.
|Rowan||KY 1722 closed at Fleming-Rowan line|
Contractors are rebuilding KY 1722 at the 9 mile marker where a slip has undermined surface pavement. Repairs include full excavation of the roadway, stabilization of the embankment, installation of new drainage measures and other work – all of which will require temporary closure of the highway.
The road will be closed at the work site through early December. A detour has been posted, which includes using KY 111 through Hillsboro in Fleming County:
- Motorists on the Fleming County side of the work site needing access to KY 1722 in Rowan County or KY 801 should take KY 111 at Grange City to KY 158 east to KY 801 south.
- Motorists on the Rowan County side of the work site needing access to KY 1722 in Fleming County should take KY 801 north to KY 158 to Hillsboro, then use KY 111 to return to KY 1722 at Grange City.
