Casey County - KY 1742 will close beginning Friday, Jan. 15 at mile point 5.622 (Br. Of Dry Creek). Following a statewide load rating analysis of select steel culverts, KYTC bridge preservation engineers determined the closure was necessary due to deterioration and insufficient supporting material above the pipes. The structure will temporarily close to all traffic for the public’s safety.
The duration of the closure will be determined once restoration plans are confirmed. Signs and barricades will be posted. Traffic should detour using KY 1547, KY 1859, and KY 70. The closure location is between Sulphur Run Road and Harpers Way. Motorists are advised to plan more time for routine commutes as the detour will add a significant amount of travel time and traffic is expected to increase on the detour routes during the closure.
