ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (May 24, 2010) — A section of Craintown Road near U.S. 68 in Marion County, near the Boyle County line, will be closed throughout the summer as crews construct two concrete bridges and realign the U.S. 68 approach.


The roadway will be closed from June 1 to Sept. 15. Motorists can detour via Crain School Road and Short Line Road, in Boyle County. The detour route is signed.


Together the bridge replacements will cost about $388,000. The work is part of a $6.7 million, 2.6-mile reconstruction of U.S. 68 from KY 243, in Marion County, to about a half-mile west of KY 34, in Boyle County.
