LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ/Press Release) – Drivers should be aware of a new project on New Circle Road/KY 4 that will impact traffic.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, construction will begin on a sound barrier wall on the East side of the interchange ramp. The project will connect Westbound US 60 to Northbound New Circle Road and along New Circle Road. The wall will be 0.48 miles long.

The project is expected to be finished by Aug. 15, 2022.
