MAYSVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Work to repair flood damage along Orangeburg Road (KY 1449) in Mason County will require an around-the-clock closure of the state highway for the next several weeks, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 16, state highway crews will close KY 1449 between Davenport Lane and Kansas Creek Road to reconstruct sections of roadway and install T-rail to stabilize embankments that were washed out during the July flood event.

The road will be closed day and night to all through traffic during repairs, which could take up to three to four weeks. Local traffic only may pass barricades. All other traffic should use KY 10, KY 3161 and KY 9 (AA Highway) to reroute:

Motorists needing to access Davenport Lane (at milepoint 3.8) or anywhere south of that point should reroute along the AA Highway and enter KY 1449 from that side.

Motorists needing to access Kansas Creek Road (at milepoint 5.0) or anywhere north (Maysville side) of that point should enter KY 1449 from the KY 10 end.

Road work schedules are subject to change depending on weather conditions. Motorists are asked to heed all warning signs, slow down in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
