The Kentucky Department of Highways District 5 Office advises motorists to be aware of construction on U.S. 421/Kentucky 55 in front of Henry County High school. A contract recently was awarded to construct a left turn lane at the school entrance. Construction was scheduled to begin July 21, and continue for at least a month.

During construction, drivers can expect daily lane closures and delays. Once Henry County Public Schools resume on Aug. 6, lane closures will not be allowed on weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. The speed limit will be reduced to 45 miles per hour in the work zone.

Flynn Brothers Contracting Inc., was awarded the project contract for $208,304.

The actual starting date and duration of this work may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen delays occur. For more information, dial 511 or visit 511.ky.gov for the latest in traffic and travel information in the Commonwealth.
