The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans a daytime work zone for tree trimming that will create likely delays along a section of KY 999/Krebs Station Road in McCracken County starting Monday, Februrary 4, 2019.
This work zone along KY 999/Krebs Station Road between the 0.0 and about the 4 mile marker will include one lane traffic with extended delays. This work zone is along KY 999/Krebs Station Road between KY 1954/Husbands Road and KY 1241.
There are a number of large limbs over the roadway that will have to be dropped into the roadway, then cut up before being loaded and hauled away or mulched. This tree trimming work could create delays of 15 to 20 minutes at times.
Crews will be starting at the KY 1954/Husbands Road intersection and at the KY 994/Old Mayfield Road intersection and working westward along KY 999/Krebs Station Road toward KY 1241 in the Lone Oak Area. Due to the expanded work zone along KY 999/Krebs Station Road this work could take several days to complete.
Motorists should be aware of the potential for delays in this work zone and avoid the area, if possible. Weather permitting, his work zone will be active between approximately 7:30 a.m., and 3:30 p.m., each day until the work is completed.
Motorists should be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.
