It's road construction season

Big construction season for Northern Kentucky; check out the projects

Posted 11:35 am / April 8, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic may have slowed the economy but is not preventing the work of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to improve and maintain highways of the Commonwealth, especially here at District 6.

Construction season is well under way the message of keeping work zones safe for all is as timely as ever.

With less traffic on our roadways, construction crews are taking advantage of the safer work zones. Motorists need to pay attention to the orange barrels and those working behind them.

Work zones can range from large construction projects along interstates and major highways to smaller crews pothole patching, ditching or mowing.

Big or small, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is committed to safety and wants everyone on Kentucky roadways, behind the wheel or a barrel, to return home safely.
