State highway crews will continue daytime road closures on KY 1444 in Carter County over the next two to three weeks for drainage pipe replacements.

Work to replace several pipes underneath the highway began Jan. 19, but has been delayed due to weather.

When weather allows this week and next – now through Feb. 5 – crews will close KY 1444 about 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day between its KY 7 and KY 773 intersections to replace pipes. Work, and road closures, are also possible the week of Feb. 8-12.

Message boards will be used to note where daily road closures will occur and to communicate any schedule changes. When the road is closed, motorists may detour through Grayson using KY 7 and KY 773.

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.
