JACKSON, KY – (April 8, 2007) – Motorists who use KY 11 in the vicinity of Natural Bridge State Resort Park in Powell County should be alerted to changing traffic patterns in the area due to construction work on the bridge leading to the park’s lodge.


Temporary traffic signals have been placed on KY 11 to control traffic on the bridge crossing the Middle Fork of the Red River. Traffic on the bridge will be restricted to one lane while repairs are being made to the bridge deck. Temporary signals have also been placed on the opposite side of the bridge, on the roads leading to the lodge and the sky lift.


These temporary signals will affect traffic traveling KY 11 between the Beattyville/Booneville area and the Mountain Parkway at Slade.


Construction activities are scheduled on a tentative basis and are subject to change depending on weather conditions. Motorists are asked to “Drive Smart” in work zones and be aware of workers and construction equipment when traveling in areas where projects are ongoing.


This project is expected to continue for the next two to three weeks, after which time the signals will be removed.
