In order to replace a damaged drainage pipe, the Kentucky Department of Highways plans to close KY 364 in Morgan County on Wednesday, Aug. 14. The road will be closed at mile-point 0.8, just inside the Magoffin County line. The project will begin around 8 a.m. and will continue until approximately 3 p.m. During this time, the road will be closed to all through traffic. No marked detour will be posted, but drivers can use either KY 1081 to KY 3333 or KY 1081 to US 460 through Magoffin County as a detour route. Motorists should plan their trips accordingly.

The Kentucky Department of Highways will temporarily close KY 161 in southern Mason County on Monday, August 5 for a drainage pipe replacement. The work, and road closure, will take place approximately from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on August 5, 2013 between Flat Fork Road and KY 324. Motorists may detour using KY 324 and KY 170. Road work schedules are dependent upon weather. Motorists should heed all warning signs, and drive carefully by remaining aware of workers and construction equipment at all times.
