A slip repair project on State Route 378 is nearing completion, and crews have minor finishing work withing the project zone near Township Road 220 (Trace Creek-Marion Ridge Road), approximately one mile west of the route’s end at State Route 141.

The route is open to traffic, and all work is scheduled to be completed by June 30.

State Route 378 will be reduced to one lane between the 0.20 and the 0.60-mile markers for two separate slip repair projects.

The project site is located just north of State Route 243 at Getaway, south of County Road 61 (Drift Creek Road). Throughout construction, traffic will be maintained in one lane with the use of temporary signals at each location.

A slip repair project has begun on State Route 93, and the route will be reduced to one, 9-foot lane at the 14.0-mile marker.

The project site is located between the north and south junctions of State Route 373, north of Pedro, and traffic will be maintained by temporary traffic signals. The project is scheduled to be completed by late July.

A bench cleaning project is under way on U.S. 52 West. Crews will be clearing the ledge and ditch area alongside the route’s westbound lanes between the State Route 93 interchange at Ironton and T.R. 268 (Crabtree Hollow Road). During most operations, westbound traffic will be reduced to one lane during working hours; eastbound traffic should not be affected by this project.

Construction for the Ironton-Russell Bridge replacement has begun, with preliminary work being conducted off affected roadways. There should be little to no impact to traffic; however, motorists are advised of equipment entering and exiting the work zone at the U.S. 23 viaduct in Kentucky, as well as in the downtown Ironton area.
