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.
