Part of Crooked Creek Road (KY 1244) in Nicholas County will be closed this month to repair an embankment slip.
Beginning Monday morning, July 27, state highway crews will close KY 1244 at milepoint 3.4, about two tenths of a mile west of Barterville. The road will remain closed there, day and night, for two weeks as crews excavate the slope and place rock along the roadside to rebuild the embankment.
Barricades will be placed at Bald Hill Road and KY 3314, with no traffic allowed past Bald Hill and only local traffic allowed past the KY 3314 barricade. Traffic may use KY 3314, US 68, and KY 1455 to detour.
The road closure and detour will remain in place until about Aug. 7, or when work is complete. Road work schedules are subject to change depending on weather conditions.
Motorists should watch message boards for announcements and traffic changes, and heed all warning signs.
