LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Whether you’re headed downtown, or anywhere else in Lexington this weekend, there are several events and construction projects that could affect you.

Reconstruction work will begin Sunday on all four outer loops of Man O’War, near Harrodsburg Road. And the left turn lane from Malabu Drive to Tates Creek Road is still closed, because of a structural failure on the bridge. Also, part of Alumni Drive, near Tates Creek Road, will be closed as that construction work begins.

There are also several events and traffic notes the city wants you to know about. The following list is from the Traffic Management Center.
