Delays likely on 25W in Whitley County

WHITLEY COUNTY — Here’s a reminder — if you’re traveling in Whitley County on U.S. 25W between mile point 29.5 to 29.7 (underneath I-75 at exit 25), you can expect some delays from now until Valentine’s Day.

That comes from the Kentucky Department of Transportation’s District 11 Office, who says crews will be working from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. on the Cumberland Falls (U.S. 25W) Safety Project.

Traffic will be allowed to pass through the work zone as the work allows. Flaggers will provide traffic control while excavation is being handled across 25W and placed in the I-75 exit 25 ramp gores.

Message board will be provided as well.

According to the District 11 Office, all work is scheduled on a tentative basis and is subject to change, depending on weather conditions and other factors beyond the Department of Highways’ control.

Motorists should be aware of the work zone and to use safe driving habits when traveling through the area.

The work began Wednesday and is scheduled to end Friday, Feb. 14.

If you need road condition reports for routes in District 11, they’re available by calling 511, or by logging on to the 511 travel and traffic information website at www.511.ky.gov.

Sculptors Brad Connell and Amanda Matthews check to make sure the legacy plaque is straight and perfectly in place.

The five are the first of the initial 24 that will be put in the park by the non-profit organization, the Friends of Colonel Sanders.
