·       KY 2 remains closed just east of the Little Sandy River bridge at milepoint 13.8 between Tortoise Street and Lea Acres Road, with traffic detoured to KY 3307 (Whetstone) or KY 1 to KY 1459. If weather permits, and once blacktop is patched, KY 2 will reopen there Monday, May 18, after noon. Watch signs and message boards.

The road will remain closed day and night for about a week. During the road closure, traffic may detour using KY 1 and KY 2 through US 23 at Greenup.

All road work subject to change depending on weather conditions. Motorists are asked to heed all warning signs, slow down in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
