Traffic controlled by temporary signals in connection with replacement of Old Buck Bridge; Old Buck Road also affected
JACKSON, KY – Traffic on KY 30 near milepoint 5.1 in Breathitt County has been reduced to one lane at the Old Buck Road intersection and will be controlled by temporary traffic signals for approximately five months.
The lane closure is necessary for a bridge replacement project on KY 30. The truss bridge over the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River, known locally as the Old Buck Bridge, is being replaced with a modern span.
In addition, traffic on Old Buck Road at the KY 30 intersection will also be controlled by a temporary signal.
A one-lane setup with temporary signals is already in place on KY 3237 (Canoe Road) in this vicinity because of the construction project.
Drivers should slow down as they approach this construction zone, watch for stopped traffic and obey the temporary traffic signal. Motorists are asked to be aware of workers, traffic control devices and construction equipment when traveling in this and other areas where projects are ongoing.
