SOUTHGATE, Ky. — Campbell County drivers should prepare for a nearly $2 million pavement rehabilitation project in Southgate that could cause delays and detours over the next several months.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will replace aging concrete with new asphalt at the U.S. 27 and Interstate 471 interchange starting next week. The work requires lane closures, weekend ramp closures and a closure on Moock Road at U.S. 27, according to KYTC.

"We are excited to address the deteriorated pavement at the U.S. 27 and I-471 interchange," said Bob Yeager, chief district engineer for KYTC District 6, in a written statement. "This will improve the commute for the residents and motorists who live and travel within this area."

The $1.8 million project, awarded to The Harper Company, is expected to be complete in October, 2019. Lane closures start the week of April 8.

Also this week, KYTC announced a road safety project in Boone County that will require a six-week closure on Turfway Road to eliminate a 90-degree curve.

Work is scheduled to begin April 1 on the $1.3 million project which will require a road closure between Aero Parkway and Donaldson Road. KYTC has yet to announce exact dates for the closure. The Turfway Road project is expected to wrap up in August.
