The following is a release from Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, District 12:
Ethan Erwin of Highway District 12’s Paintsville Section Office said that there will be 30-45-minute traffic delays tomorrow on KY 40 at the Magoffin County line (mile point 0.0-0.4).
Installation of a cross drain underneath the pavement will take most of the day. The contractor plans to keep traffic moving by working on one lane at a time, but even at that, Erwin said, there could be long delays. “If there is another route people can take tomorrow between about 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., they would probably be happier.”
