Nancy Wood of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, District 6, gave an update of the current road construction projects in Campbell County today.
In Fort Thomas on KY 445 (River Road) 0.0 – 1.0 mile-marker – "Work continues this week until Friday, July 10th, there will be road work on KY 445 between KY 8 and KY 1120. Single lane closures will be in place from 7 PM – 6 AM. Expect delays. Work is weather dependant."
Northbound US 27 – Cold Spring –
"The right lane on Northbound US 27 near Low Gap Road is closed. Drivers should exercise caution and watch for traffic control."
Riverboat Row in Newport – "Riverboat Row is closed between the Chart House Restaurant and Joes Crab Shack Restaurant for extensive repairs to the underlying Taylor Creek culvert. Thru traffic will not be permitted on Riverboat Row for vehicles, bicycles or pedestrians. The intersection of Riverboat Row and Dave Cowens Drive (KY 8) will remain open at Riviera Drive; however, traffic will not be able to proceed beyond the entrances to Joes Crab Shack Restaurant and the Comfort Suites Hotel. Access for the Chart House Restaurant will be provided though the Newport “Port of Entry.”
Please exercise caution and obey the traffic control devices surrounding the construction area. The project requires large equipment and large materials that will occupy the majority of the roadway. The timeline for total completion of the project and the re-opening of Riverboat Row is undetermined at this point.
KY 9 - Newport – Road Work has begun along Lowell Street between 9th Street and KY 9 (12th Street). Drivers should exercise caution and watch for traffic control devices, flaggers, construction personnel and equipment entering and leaving the work zone.
