Traffic Lights Coming to Hands Pike & Taylor Mill Rd.
Traffic lights have been hung across Taylor Mill Road (Kentucky 16) where it meets Hands Pike in South Covington.
As of Sunday evening they were not yet operational.
The River City News reported in August that new stoplights would be added in the Taylor Mill/South Covington area as part of the Kentucky 16 widening project. One of those locations was Hands Pike while the other two were at Pride Parkway (already operational) and another one at Scott High School on Old Taylor Mill Road.
The entire Taylor Mill Road widening project got under way in spring 2011 with construction on the southern section, followed by construction on the northern section in summer 2012. To date, the cost of design, right of way, utilities and construction of all three sections totals $79.2 million.
The southern section, between Klette Road and Sunbrite Drive, was completed this year. The northern section, from Blackstone Court to I-275, will be finished soon. The center section has a scheduled completion of spring 2016.
