BathKY 11, KY 801, KY 2522 surfacing
Contractors are preparing to pave KY 11, KY 801 and KY 2522 (old US 60) in Bath, Fleming and Rowan counties - watch for mobile operations and one-lane flagged traffic. Microsurfacing operations will begin on or about May 13-14 for these locations:

-- KY 11 in Bath County, from the Montgomery County line north past Sharpsburg to KY 1106 near Bethel, for a distance of 7.5 miles

-- KY 11 in Fleming County, from the Licking River bridge near the county line north to Meadows Lane near the Flemingsburg Bypass, for a distance of 10.2 miles

Motorists should expect daily lane closures and delays with traffic controlled by flaggers along short sections of each roadway. Message boards will be used to announce traffic changes.

Motorists are also advised to avoid driving on newly placed paving material, which means traffic on side roads may be stopped for lengthy periods of time. Contractors will be available to assist motorists at intersections.
