The new enhanced signage will improve visibility and provide additional safety.   

Work will be performed:

The location of the work on US 68 will be between Coghill Lane (MP 17.542) and the Brooklyn Bridge (MP 20.058).  This will be a mobile operation with traffic control devices and flaggers directing the traveling public. 

Motorists traveling this route should expect lane closures and intermittent delays due to the sign installation project.

Alternate routes:

 

  • To Lexington – US 127 (north) to the Bluegrass Parkway (eastbound) to US 60 (eastbound)

 

  • To Nicholasville – KY 152 (eastbound) to US 27 (north)

All scheduled work is subject to change depending on weather, 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 near the work area.
