Daytime Work Zone along KY 125 (Union City Highway) in Fulton County for Storm Debris Removal

Debris clearing work to take about two days to complete

PADUCAH, Ky. (July 2, 2024) – A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) plans a work zone lane restriction along a section of KY 125 (Union City Highway) south of the KY 166 (Middle Road) intersection starting Wednesday, July 3, 2024.

This daytime lane restriction along KY 125 (Union City Highway) runs from mile point 0.0 at the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line, extending northward to the KY 166 (Middle Road) intersection at mile point 1.65.

The contractor and the KYTC Fulton County Highway Maintenance Crew will be removing storm debris along the right-of-way. This work zone will be active from about 7 a.m., to about 5 p.m., CDT, each day.

Motorists should be alert for one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers. Some delays are possible during the movement and placement of equipment to facilitate the work.

KY 125 connects with TN Route 5 at the state line. Approximately 2,100 vehicles travel this section of KY 125 in an average day.

Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.

The work is expected to take about two days to complete.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has reopened a section of KY 1282 West of the Brownsville community in Fulton County.

KY 1282 has been closed since late March when high winds brought down a mass of trees near the 6 mile marker in the Wilson Hill area immediately west of the KY 925 intersection.

A specialized tree-cutting crew had to be called in to clear the tangle of limbs and trees left hanging over the roadway by the storm. The specialized contractor had been tied up with work removing debris from several other areas hit by tornados across Kentucky in recent months.

While they are in the area, the crew will be working at some other locations to remove storm debris along roadways.

KY 1282 is now open to normal traffic flow near the 6 mile marker at Wilson Hill in Fulton County.
