|Bath||Pipe work on KY 36 in Bath County|
Work to replace more than 50 drainage pipes under KY 36 between the 1 and 8 mile markers, from Main Street at Sharpsburg to a half mile east of Powers Branch Road, is now under way.
During construction, the roadway will be one-lane each day where crews are working and will be restricted to a 9-foot width limit. Work will take place now through summer, with a final completion date of Oct. 15. Larger pipe replacements this summer will require temporary closures and detours, which will be announced.
Motorists should watch message boards for details. Trucks larger than 9 feet wide should reroute using US 60 or KY 11 and other connecting state routes. A detour will not be posted.

Beginning Monday, Feb. 6, repair crews will replace joints and perform other work on the KY 1274 bridge over the Licking River at the Rowan-Menifee county line (milepoint 0).

Painting is expected to take place April through August, and will also reduce bridges to one lane for about a month each. Specific schedules will be announced.
