State highway work zones for this week

Temporary lane, road closures scheduled

FLEMINGSBURG – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reminds motorists to watch for lane closures, delays, and traffic changes across the Commonwealth during the summer construction season.

In addition to providing real-time traffic conditions and travel information online at GoKY.ky.gov or via Waze on your smartphone, the Kentucky Department of Highways District 9 reports the following major work zones and traffic changes in northeast Kentucky on social media – at Facebook.com/KYTCDistrict9 and at Twitter.com/KYTCDistrict9 – and to its media partners via email for July 5-8:

BATH COUNTY

  • I-64: Expect mobile work zone for pavement friction testing along the interstate through Bath, Rowan, Carter, and Boyd counties, mile markers 116 to 191. Watch for slow-moving vehicles, pass with care. Tentatively scheduled on or around July 7.

BOYD COUNTY

  • I-64: Expect mobile work zone for pavement friction testing along the interstate through Bath, Rowan, Carter, and Boyd counties, mile markers 116 to 191. Watch for slow-moving vehicles, pass with care. Tentatively scheduled on or around July 7.
  • I-64: Milling and paving on I-64 between the Cannonsburg and Catlettsburg exits (mile markers 184 to 191), with one-lane traffic each direction and traffic shifts inside the work zone as needed. Approaching the work zone, merge left as the right lane is closed. Where indicated, on-ramp traffic entering the highway must yield to oncoming traffic. Speed limit is 55 miles per hour. Watch for trucks entering and leaving the roadway. Use caution, expect delays.
  • US 60 (Coalton to Cannonsburg): Major road reconstruction taking place on 4 miles of US 60 between I-64 at Coalton and the Cannonsburg intersection. Traffic has been shifted to new pavement in some areas. Watch for intermittent flagged traffic, narrow travel lanes, and speed limit changes. Minor blasting is taking place near Princess noon to 3 p.m. daily when possible. Expect delays.
  • US 60 (Catlettsburg-Kenova Bridge): Crews are painting steel support beams underneath the Billy C. Clark (US 60) Bridge. All bridge traffic between Catlettsburg and Kenova is being controlled by temporary traffic signals, with one lane crossing at a time. Expect delays.

CARTER COUNTY

  • I-64: Expect mobile work zone for pavement friction testing along the interstate through Bath, Rowan, Carter, and Boyd counties, mile markers 116 to 191. Watch for slow-moving vehicles, pass with care. Tentatively scheduled on or around July 7.
  • KY 7/KY 1 (Carol Malone Boulevard): A widening project along 1.5 miles of KY 7/KY 1 at downtown Grayson has all traffic shifted into a new three-lane configuration – one lane each direction with a center turn lane. Approaching the work zone, traffic will merge into a single thru lane from Academic Parkway to the Little Sandy River. Use caution. Speed limit reduced to 25 miles per hour. NOTE: Traffic lanes are expected to switch sides during July when contractors switch construction to the southbound side of the highway.

GREENUP COUNTY

  • KY 3307 (Whetstone Road): Crews will close the road beginning Wednesday, July 6, to replace a large culvert under the highway near Womack Hollow Road (milepoint 2.3). The road could remain closed, day and night, at the work site for about a week. Use KY 2 or other routes to detour.

MASON COUNTY

  • US 62 (Simon Kenton Bridge): Inspection scheduled for July 14. All traffic between Kentucky and Ohio should detour 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. via US 68 at the Harsha bridge.

ROWAN COUNTY

  • I-64: Expect mobile work zone for pavement friction testing along the interstate through Bath, Rowan, Carter, and Boyd counties, mile markers 116 to 191. Watch for slow-moving vehicles, pass with care. Tentatively scheduled on or around July 7.
  • KY 32 (near I-64): A private contractor is working on KY 32 westbound (outbound from Morehead) at the Kroger shopping center intersection. Lane closures, flagged traffic possible.

Motorists should also watch for lane closures and flagged traffic where crews are performing daily maintenance activities such as paint striping, pothole patching, ditching, mowing, and other roadway repairs in District 9’s service area of Bath, Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Nicholas and Rowan counties.

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.

WORK ZONE TIPS

  • Slow down, buckle up, and expect the unexpected.
  • Stay alert, and avoid distractions.
  • Don’t tailgate. Keep a safe braking distance between you and the vehicle ahead, and between construction workers and equipment.
  • Obey road crew flaggers, and pay attention to message boards and warning signs.
  • Plan ahead: Visit ky.gov or use Waze to see where road work is taking place. Or visit your highway district’s social media accounts. Find your district at https://transportation.ky.gov/DistrictPages.
