NEWS RELEASE

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will have a moving daytime work zone along US 60 in LIVINGSTON County starting THIS WEEK.

This daytime moving work zone is to allow brush cutting along the 29 miles of US 60 right of way through Livingston County.

The Livingston County Highway Maintenance Crew will be using a tractor mounted Mow-Trim to cut back brush starting along US 60 from the KY 937/Cutoff Road intersection and working westward toward Paducah to the US 60 Tennessee River Bridge at Ledbetter. The crew will then return to the KY 937 intersection and work eastward along US 60 toward Salem to the Livingston-Crittenden County Line.

Motorists should be prepared to encounter short sections of one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers. Some delays are possible as traffic will have to be halted for 5 to 10 minutes to allow brush cutting along embankments in close proximity to traffic flow.

This brush cutting effort will continue during daylight hours over about the next month anytime weather allows. Appropriate caution is required where equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel are along the roadway in close proximity to traffic flow.
