JACKSON, KY – Two road closures have been scheduled in Owsley County in order to allow Kentucky Department of Highways personnel to make repairs. Routes affected are KY 2152 on June 17 and KY 708 on June 24.


On Wednesday, June 17, KY 2152 (Left Fork of Cow Creek Road) will be closed at milepoint 0.8 for bridge repairs. A temporary diversion will be in place for local and emergency traffic only.


On Wednesday, June 24, KY 708 will be closed at milepoint 0.8, north of the route’s intersection with KY 30 at Lerose, for a culvert replacement. No signed detour will be marked, but motorists can use KY 52 and KY 11 through Beattyville to Booneville, then KY 30 to Lerose, as an alternate route.


Inclement weather during this period may force the closure to be postponed.
