Operations have begun for a bridge replacement project on S.R. 125 at Georgetown.

The entire project is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2020. (#19-0138)

The Simon Kenton Bridge in Aberdeen/Maysville is closed until Spring of 2020, pending completion of a project by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to repair the bridge. For the duration of the closure, traffic is being detoured along US 52 to US 68 (William H. Harsha Bridge) three miles west of Maysville.


Work has begun for a bridge replacement on S.R. 279 at Jackson Lake. S.R. 279 between T.R. 8 (Tommy Been Rd.) and W. Main St. in Oak Hill is reduced to one, 8.5' lane. This restriction will remain in effect throughout the winter. Traffic will be maintained using a temporary traffic signal. The project is scheduled to be completed in early spring. (#19-0463)


Lane restrictions are in effect on U.S. 52 between the Ashland, Ky. Twin Bridges and C.R. 15 (Lick Creek Road) for median barrier wall construction; construction also includes blasting and excavating rock from the hillside at various locations, paving and guardrail installation. Traffic will be maintained in at least one lane each direction throughout construction, with possible full closure of the route for interim, short-term periods during blasting operations. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2020. (#19-0253)


Work has begun on a slide repair project on C.R. 50 (Watson Rd.) between Hay Hollow Rd. and Mutton Run Rd. C.R. 50 will remain restricted to one lane with traffic maintained using temporary signals.

All work is expected to complete by summer 2020. (#19-05478)
