FLEMINGSBURG – Motorists should plan for brief traffic delays at the Grayson I-64 exit in Carter County and on US 23 at Ashland Town Center and River Hill Drive in Boyd County this week for signal upgrades.
All intersection traffic will be flagged Tuesday and Wednesday at the following locations and times:
- Carter County: KY 1/KY 7 at I-64 westbound exit ramp in Grayson, 8 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, Sept. 6
- Boyd County: US 23 at Ashland Town Center Mall, 8 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Sept. 7
- Boyd County: US 23 at River Hill Drive, noon to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 7
Kentucky Department of Highways crews and contractors will replace old traffic signal control cabinets with new upgraded systems, which will require the signals to be powered off for several hours. Flaggers will control all intersection traffic during the work.
Crews will try to wait until after school starts to lessen traffic impacts, but work could affect some morning rush hour traffic. Because these intersections are high-traffic areas, delays are likely. Motorists are advised to be prepared or seek alternate routes.
Road work schedules are 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.
