 GET INVOLVED: Stand Out for Work Zone Safety!

 

​Work zones are about more than just the crews and contractors who work there ... What happens in them impacts the lives of families, and entire communities.

You can "stand out" for our dads and moms, coaches, pastors, community leaders, and others who are in our work zones! Dress in fluourescent yellow or other bright colors, and submit a photo of support to KYTC.District9Info@Ky.Gov or post to our Facebook Page, or LEARN MORE!

All photos will be posted to our public Flickr Group -- To show the world that we should keep workers - and ourselves - safe by slowing down and reducing distractions in all work zones!

Description
Lewis
All traffic on KY 8 at Garrison is detoured as the Kinniconnick bridge has been closed for replacement.

Demolition of the old bridge, excavation for new piers and other work will take place through spring. Steel beam placement and concrete work on the new bridge is set for summer and fall. The new bridge is expected to be open for traffic by Nov. 15.

During the bridge closure, KY 8 traffic should reroute using KY 1306 and KY 3311 nearby. A detour will be marked.
 

 Remember ...
