JACKSON, Ky. – Beginning Friday, March 13 and continuing until the middle of next week, the ramp from KY 15 (the Hazard Bypass) to KY 451 will be closed to traffic. This closure is necessary to remove fallen rocks from the benched cuts above the roadway.


This means that there will be no access to downtown Hazard from the bypass via the Home Lumber Bridge. Bypass motorists wishing to get to downtown will have to use Business KY 15 from either end of the bypass.


This closure will not affect through traffic on KY 15 or KY 451.
