Traffic Alert: Monmouth Street to Be Reduced to One Lane at Carothers Road
Times for a road work project in Newport have been adjusted by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
Both north bound lanes on Monmouth Street (US 27) between Carothers Road and Eleventh Street will be closed daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for work that started Monday. Originally, work was scheduled to stop at 6 p.m. but has been expanded an hour.
US 27 south will be reduced to one lane between Eleventh & Carothers.
The right turn lane from Carothers to US 27 north will be closed and the left through lane oon US 27 at Carothers will also be closed.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 Office recommends that drivers take I-471 north to Memorial Parkway as a detour. The closure is needed to stabilize the retaining wall located along US 27 north. The project is expected to be completed on Friday, May 16.
