“We are happy to start this project that will improve the corridor and make it a safer roadway for those who travel through and live here,” said Bob Yeager, chief district engineer of Department of Highways District 6, in Covington.

Improvements will include:

  • Adding a right turn lane at KY 177 onto U.S. 27 in Pendleton County with a new lane connecting to the current truck lane on northbound U.S. 27.
  • Realignment of the intersection at U.S. 27 and Boss Dunaway Road in Pendleton County.
  • Realignment of the intersection of U.S. 27 and Plum Creek Church Road in Campbell County.

Motorists can expect flaggers for culvert work near KY 177.  Also, watch for crews, equipment and possible lane closures within the work zone.

KYTC awarded the $5.6 million project to Lawrence Construction & Leasing, Inc. of Walton, Kentucky.   The project has a July 1, 2022 completion date.
