A portion of KY 229 in Laurel County (between Old State Road and Smith Brewer Road intersections) at mile points 6.877 will be reduced to one lane beginning Monday, Oct. 19, and concluding Sunday, Nov. 15.

The lane closure is necessary to allow contractors to perform a bridge overlay project. During the construction work, the bridge will be reduced to one lane (24 hours a day) and will be controlled using traffic signals.
