JACKSON, KY – (May 27, 2005) -- In order to begin construction of the bridge that will carry new KY 15 over Frozen Creek, KY 1812 in Breathitt County will be closed near mile marker 13 beginning Tuesday, May 31. The closure is expected to last approximately two months.

The closure location is between Keck and Vancleve, or between KY 378 and Hoover Bridge Road. The closure is necessary to begin construction of the piers on the bridge for new KY 15, which is part of the $37 million project that began in January.

The road closure will require motorists on the Keck side of the new bridge to detour via KY 1812 south across Frozen Mountain to reach KY 15 near Panbowl Lake in Jackson.
