COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A section of U.S. 42 in northern Kentucky that has been prone to landslides will be closed for two years so that crews can reconstruct the roadway.
A statement from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the closure of the 1.2-mile section of highway in Gallatin County will begin Nov. 1.
Officials said that along with constructing a new road, crews will relocate utilities and install a tie-back wall.
Engineer Bob Yeager says crews have been doing preliminary work since July and are ready to move forward with the next phase.
The $18 million project is scheduled to be completed in November 2023.
