SOMERSET – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 8 Office advises motorists that KY 61 in Adair County has been reduced to one lane at the Russell Creek bridge (mile point 16.9) as crews work to remove drift and other debris from beneath the structure.
Work is requiring a full closure of the roadway as debris is being loaded onto trucks. Motorists may experience longer delays during this process. Flaggers will maintain traffic during the work.
Work is expected to be completed Monday, July 12. The duration of work may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays. Drivers should expect delays and are encouraged to allow extra time in reaching their destination.
