Posted: Oct 5, 2020 2:57 PM

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), daily lane restrictions will begin Wednesday, Oct. 7, on U.S. 60 to help the construction of a diversion (temporary section of road) within the project limits.

KYTC says that once the diversion is complete, traffic will be moved to it to allow work on the connection between the new roadway and existing U.S. 60.

According to KYTC, it will take around two to four weeks to construct the 500 ft. diversion. The daily lane closures will be removed at the end of each day and replaced in the morning.

Flaggers will address traffic control while this work is performed. Motorists are asked to reduce their speed and to be prepared for stop-and-go traffic.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
