JACKSON, KY – Detour routes have been determined for the week-long closure of KY 11/KY 15 (College Avenue) in Stanton. This is related to the project to widen and improve KY 213 (Main Street) in Stanton.


Starting Monday, Aug. 10, KY 11/KY 15 will be closed between Sipple Street and Main Street for placement of concrete pavement at the intersection of Main Street and College Avenue. This will require through College Avenue traffic to detour around the intersection, using several city streets.


Through north-south traffic on KY 213 will not be affected, although no turns will be allowed from KY 213 onto northbound KY 11/KY 15. Two-way traffic will be maintained on Main Street through the intersection during this period.


Traffic heading south on KY 11/KY 15 toward Rosslyn, Bowen and Slade will have two options to detour the intersection. Drivers may turn left on Sipple Street and then right on Halls Road to rejoin College Avenue. Drivers may also turn right on Sipple Street and then follow Elkins Street and Ewen Street back to College Avenue.


Traffic heading north on KY 11/KY 15 toward downtown Stanton should reverse those detours. Drivers may either turn left onto Ewen Street and then follow Elkins Street and Sipple Street back to College Avenue, or may turn right onto Halls Road or Strode Street and then use Halls Road to make their way back to College Avenue.


Northbound traffic on KY 213 wishing to turn left onto College Avenue should use Sipple Street. This is the route commonly used by local drivers to avoid the left turn at the Main-College intersection.


Southbound traffic on KY 213 wishing to turn right onto College Avenue may use any of several options to reach College Avenue, including Boone Street to Washington Street, or Halls Road.


Motorists are advised to expect delays in Stanton during this week-long period.
