Lane shifts on Wilson Downing Rd scheduled to begin Tuesday


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The city is encouraging drivers to find alternate routes starting Tuesday, May 2, as the primary lanes of Wilson Downing Road near Tates Creek Centre will shift over into what is regularly the right turn lane into the shopping center.

The lane shift, which will be made sometime after 9 a.m. Tuesday, is being made as crews work to reconstruct the original section of the bridge, which was built in the early 1960s.
