Repair project is started
Safety concerns will require Ky. 503 in Greenup County to close to through traffic this week and next as work continues on an embankment failure.
Ky. 503 will be closed about halfway between Ky. 5 and Ky. 207 until at least Jan. 16, as contractors stabilize the embankment by “soil nailing” – a ground reinforcement process using long, thin pieces of metal to tie layers of rock and dirt together.
The road closure will affect all through traffic 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each work day. However, passage for school buses and emergency vehicles will be allowed. Signs alerting the traveling public will be posted.
