The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 Office announces two resurfacing projects on KY 8X (Dave Cowens Drive, Fairfield Avenue, Clay Street, Fourth Avenue, Sixth Avenue) in Campbell County beginning Sunday, Sept. 17.
The first resurfacing project goes from Park Avenue to Clay Street/Sixth Avenue. The second resurfacing project is from Clay Street/Sixth Avenue to KY 6335.
The contractor plans to do most of the resurfacing work Monday through Friday between the evening/overnight hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. Some minor operations requiring a single-lane closure may be necessary on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. KYTC will advise motorists ahead of when daytime work may be required. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction at all times during construction. Lane closures will only be required during working hours.
Crews will begin by addressing base failures on KY 8X in Bellevue and Newport and then work east on KY 8X through Dayton. Once base failures have been addressed, crews will begin resurfacing the project area.
Signage will be posted on KY 8X warning motorists of no street parking while the project is ongoing. Motorists are encouraged to find alternate parking on side streets in accordance with city parking regulations.
Flaggers will be in place to guide traffic safely through the work zone. Motorists should drive slowly through the project area and watch for trucks entering/leaving the work zone during working hours.
These resurfacing projects are expected to be completed by Wednesday, Nov. 15.
