Traffic shift scheduled for US127 in Russell Co. Monday

By Amber Hale

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists that on Monday, Oct. 18, contractors are scheduled to shift traffic on U.S. 127 in Russell County from the current driving lanes onto the newly constructed realigned portion of roadway.

Traffic traveling U.S. 127 will be shifted onto the new driving lanes between Holt Road (mile point 7.8) located just south of KY 55, and Story Lane (mile point 10).

In addition, crews will temporarily close KY 55 to through traffic starting Monday between the intersection of U.S. 127 (mile point 0) and KY 2284 (mile point 0.5) as work takes places to realign KY 55 as it intersects with the new U.S. 127 alignment. A signed detour route will be posted via KY 2284. Work is expected to be complete and the KY 55 intersection reopened in 2 - 3 weeks.

The speed limit will remain reduced to 45 mph as additional phases of work continue.

Motorist are advised to slow down and pay close attention to signage as they travel through the work zone. The dates may be adjusted for inclement weather or other unforeseeable delays.
