MANCHESTER — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 11 Office advised motorists Monday of several projects causing road closures on Monday.

The Jellico Creek Bridge on KY 92 (mile point 3.0) is now closed, as it was closed Monday, due to the condition of steel stringer beams supporting the deck.

All traffic will be detoured to U.S. 25W to KY 90 through the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park into McCreary County at U.S. 27, north of Whitley City and Stearns.

The bridge closure will be in place until repairs can be made. The repairs are expected to take up to six weeks.

A portion of I-75 southbound at mile point 19.0 in Whitley County has been reduced to one lane and is expected to conclude on Friday.

Work times will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

The lane closure is necessary due to rock slide removal operations.

A portion of U.S. 25W (mile points 0.0 – 11.0) in Whitley County will have intermediate lane closures beginning Monday and they are expected to conclude on Friday, Sept. 20.

The intermittent lane closures will be in effect Monday thru Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

The road closure is necessary due to KYTC District 11 crews and contractors conducting tree trimming and tree cutting operations.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet asks motorists to be aware of the work zone, expected delays, and to utilize safe driving habits when traveling through the area.
