MANCHESTER, Ky. (DOT/WYMT) - Lane closings will be in effect on KY 80 (near its junction with U.S. 421 in the city of Manchester) and the Hal Rogers Parkway (at mile marker 16) beginning Thursday, August 1 and concluding on Friday, August 30.
The closings are necessary to allow for repairs to concrete bridge decks which have become pockmarked. The four-lane KY 80 bridge will be reduced to two lanes for the duration of the project, while the two-lane Rogers Parkway bridge will be reduced to one lane. Traffic control on the Rogers Parkway bridge will be facilitated through the use of temporary traffic signals.
All work is scheduled on a tentative basis and is subject to change depending on weather conditions, emergencies and other factors beyond the control of the Department of Highways.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet asks motorists to be aware of the work zone and to utilize safe driving habits when traveling through the area.
