Drivers should exercise caution along KY Highway 259 South as milling and asphalt paving operations are underway.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) released a statement this week to let the public know that the work would begin along KY-259 this past Thursday night, Oct. 8.
Work began at the intersection of KY-259 (known as South Main Street at this point of the roadway) and the William Thomason Byway, and will continue on in a southeastward direction to the intersection of KY-259 (known as Anneta Road at this point) and KY-226 (which continues on as Anneta Road or St. Anthony Road).
Milling work should have been completed on Thursday and Friday nights, and traffic will be running on a milled surface for the next four to five days until paving is complete.
The paving work will begin on Monday, Oct. 12, according to KYTC Public Information Officer Chris Jessie.
Jessie explained that flaggers will be directing traffic around milling and paving operations.
“Motorists should pay close attention to signage and slow down through the work zone,” Jessie said.
Message boards are also in place to let motorists know of the upcoming roadwork.
