|Carter||I-64 roadside work thru winter|
Motorists should watch for intermittent shoulder or outside lane closures on I-64 between the Rowan-Carter county line and Boyd County this winter for roadside tree trimming and other work.
In addition, eastbound I-64 in Carter County is currently one lane at the KY 207 overpass east of Grayson. Traffic will be restricted to one lane between the 177 and 178 mile markers.
The work is part of two projects totaling about $19 million that provides pavement, drainage, guardrail and roadside upgrades to 16 miles of I-64 in Carter and Rowan counties.
|Carter||Bridge replacement US 60 Reeves Branch|
Contractors with Frederick and May Construction are replacing the US 60 bridge over Reeves Branch in western Carter County about 3.7 miles east of the Rowan County line.
All traffic is using an adjacent on-site detour, which will continue through the winter months. Motorists should watch for that traffic change, and take it slow around the diversionary route’s curves and through the construction zone. Work is being done under a $1 million Transportation Cabinet contract.
|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, rough pavement and other impacts daily, and should be mindful of trucks or other heavy equipment entering and leaving the highway.
Contractors have switched traffic onto newly-built portions of KY 7 at the KY 885 intersection and across the Hilltop area.
Motorists should expect to encounter lane shifts, as well as new driveway and county road entrances. In addition, traffic was previously shifted onto a new section of KY 7 in the Bruin area near what’s called tanker curve.
|Elliott||Repair work on KY 3353 in Elliott County|
Motorists who use Horton Flats Road (KY 3353) in northeast Elliott County should watch for road repairs this month. Contractors will be replacing drainage pipes and correcting roadway damage along the highway. Lengthy closures are not expected. However, intermittent lane restrictions or temporary traffic stoppages are possible during daytime work hours.
|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, new pavement and other work – all of which will require temporary closure of the highway.
The road is closed at the work site. 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.
