“The road will remain closed night and day until work is complete,” Blair said.

The work on the roadway will include replacing a bridge with an aluminum box culvert, according to Blair.

According to Blair, the work should be completed by 3 p.m. on Friday, July 20, weather permitting.

No through traffic will be allow on the roadway during the work.

“Barricades will be placed on Kentucky 367 at Kentucky 170 and Kentucky 888, with only local traffic permitted past those points,” he said.
