JACKSON, KY. – (May 17, 2006) -- Motorists on KY 15 south of Jackson may experience delays on Thursday and Friday as work begins on a safety improvement project.

Left turn lanes will be added at the intersection of KY 15 with KY 1098 and KY 1812 at Quicksand. This project will involve minor widening of KY 15, along with paving and striping to accommodate the new left turn lanes. The work is expected to take two days, weather permitting.

Motorists are advised to be alert to the possibility of encountering stopped traffic during the construction. They are urged to "Drive Smart" and be on the lookout for flaggers, workers, equipment and traffic control devices as the work progresses.
