A small stretch of highway in Whitesburg located about a half of a mile from Walmart on old US 119 toward Whitesburg will be closed Nov. 4, according to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials.
KY 2034 between mile points zero and one will be closed from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. KTC Highway District 12 Superintendent Billy Smallwood said that Letcher County maintenance specialists will install a cross drain under the pavement. The alternate route is KY 15, which goes around KY 2034.
Smallwood apologized for the temporary inconvenience. “We want to thank people in advantage for their understanding. This is part of the routine maintenance we perform to make sure our roadways stay free of drainage problems.”
