Major Traffic Delays Expected on KY 377 Near Morehead Monday for Bridge Work
Steel beam deliveries for the Cimmaron Road bridge replacement at KY 377 in Rowan County will cause major traffic delays near Morehead on Monday.
Between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, contractors will deliver three 22,000-pound, 100-foot long steel beams to the work site on Cimmaron Road, which is off KY 377 about a half mile from the KY 32 intersection. The following traffic impacts are expected:
- KY 377 (Cranston Rd): During each delivery, all traffic on KY 377 between KY 32 and Cimmaron Road (milepoint 0-0.5) will be blocked for 15 to 30 minutes while crews back the steel beams from the KY 32 intersection to Cimmaron Road for offloading.
- KY 32 (Flemingsburg Rd): Flaggers will direct traffic at the KY 32-KY 377 intersection as trucks maneuver through the area. One-lane traffic is possible on KY 32 at times. Expect backups.
During each of the three deliveries, contractors will do their best to minimize traffic impacts, but motorists are advised to seek alternate routes if possible between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday or plan for major traffic delays.
The work is part of a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet project to replace the substandard bridge on Cimmaron Road (CR 1317) that spans the North Fork of Triplett Creek. The project is being done by RGF, Inc., under a $1,032,347.07 low-bid state contract. The contractor has until April 15, 2023, to complete the work.
Road work schedules are subject to change depending on weather conditions. Motorists are asked to heed all warning signs, slow down in work zones and remain aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling.
