New bridge requires temporary lane closure in Perry County

ROWDY, Ky (WYMT) - See the below release from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

JACKSON, KY - Lane and width restrictions are now in effect on KY 476 near Rowdy in Perry County as a bridge replacement project moves forward.

Temporary signals are in place to control traffic at the bridge crossing Troublesome Creek at milepoint 18.37. These temporary signals will be in use until approximately Oct. 1 as the bridge replacement project proceeds.

During the project, the route will be restricted to vehicles less than 8 feet wide. This restriction is also expected to last until approximately Oct. 1. Vehicles wider than 8 feet will need to find an alternate route around the project. Overwidth vehicles can use KY 15 and KY 80 as a detour route.

Drivers should slow down as they approach this construction zone, watch for stopped traffic and obey the temporary traffic signals. Motorists should be aware of workers, traffic control devices and construction equipment when traveling in this and other areas where projects are ongoing.
