Whitesburg KY

Bridge work continues

Motorists traveling KY 15 between Hazard and Whitesburg can expect delays at Carr Creek Lake to continue for several more weeks.

Since early last week, traffic has been reduced to one lane and controlled by temporary traffic signals at the bridge carrying KY 15 across Carr Creek Lake at mile point 5.63 in Knott County. Work on the bridge is expected to take five more weeks to complete.

Motorists should also be alert to construction activities taking place at the KY 15 bridge at mile point 4.04, near the KY 160 intersection.

These bridges are two of 11 along the KY 15 corridor scheduled for painting and minor repairs between now and Aug. 31. The contract for the repairs was awarded earlier this year.
