Drivers who use KY 594 (Red Lick Road) in Estill County will have to find an alternate route for the next few weeks, as repairs are planned that will necessitate the road's closure during working hours.
Work is tentatively planned to begin by Monday, Jan. 18, to repair a major break in pavement. Initially, traffic will be able to pass through the work area, but most of the repairs will require the road to be closed during the day.
The work zone location is at mile-point 4.7, which is 0.5 miles west of Horns River Road and 4.7 miles east of the Madison County line.
During overnight hours, one-lane traffic will be maintained and controlled by temporary signals.
No marked detour will be posted. Drivers who wish to detour via state routes will need to use US 421 in Madison County to connect to KY 499 or KY 52. Locally-maintained roads are available, such as Clark Road and Knob Lick Road to connect with KY 499.
No timeframe is available for when the repairs will be completed and the road fully reopened. Schedule changes and other announcements pertaining to the project will be made on KYTC District 10's Facebook page.
