BoydImprovements on KY 3294 Cannonsburg Road
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 at Cannonsburg past the KY 538 intersection to Johnda Drive on the Catlettsburg side.

The public should expect delays with lane closures controlled by flaggers for ditching and pipe replacements. Contractors will replace pipes half at a time to avoid complete closures. However, some full road closures will be required and will be announced. Motorists should watch message boards and signs for traffic announcements.
