JACKSON, KY – (April 13, 2007) – In order to allow contractors to set beams on the new bridge that will carry four-lane KY 15 across KY 1812 and Frozen Creek, KY 1812 in Breathitt County will be closed beneath that span beginning Monday, April 16.

 

The closure will begin after the morning school bus run and is expected to remain in effect for most of the week.

 

The road closure is necessary because the cranes that lift the beams into place must be positioned on the highway, therefore blocking it.

 

No marked detour will be posted, but motorists can use KY 15 from Vancleve to Jackson and then follow KY 1812 across Frozen Mountain, or vice versa, as an alternate route.
