Work starts at 9:30 this morning, Tuesday, February 27, on beam repairs to the bridge on KY 15 near the marina and beach at Carr Creek Lake in Knott County. D12 Section Engineer Steve Green said the work is expected to take three to four weeks.
The state’s contractor, M&M Services, will allow free flow for motorists during morning and afternoon peak school traffic times. At all other time, temporary traffic signals will be used in the work zone.
Green urged people to slow down when approaching the work zone, for their own safety as well as that of the work crew. “People are always understanding and patient,” he said. “We appreciate everyone’s cooperation. When everyone respects the signs and signals and stays alert when they see workers and heavy equipment in the work zone, it makes the work proceed safely, without incident.”
