ROWAN, Ky. (WTVQ) – Routine repairs to the KY 799 overpass on I-64 in Rowan County will require temporary traffic restrictions this month.
Beginning Monday, Dec. 21, contractors will reduce westbound I-64 to one lane at the KY 799 overpass near mile marker 146 for concrete patching of bridge piers.
Motorists should expect one-lane traffic to start shortly after the weigh station, and will remain in place during daytime work hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for several days.
No work or traffic restrictions will take place during the Christmas holiday or weekends.
Contractors will also make repairs to overpass joints and the KY 799 driving surface later this month, likely the week of Dec. 28, which will require one-lane traffic on KY 799 controlled by flaggers.
During construction, motorists on I-64 and KY 799 should reduce speeds and follow all merge and work zone signs for traffic safety.
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.
