LAWRENCE COUNTY – WEDNESDAY, May 16, 2018 – County Road 1202 (Mattie Road) will close for 15 calendar days starting May 29, weather permitting, for installation of the aluminum box culvert. Motorists will need to use a detour during this time. The work was originally scheduled to begin May 23, the day after Election Day. When the contractor realized the next weekend and the following Monday were part of Memorial Day Weekend, the start date was re-set to Tuesday, May 29.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is building the county a new bridge on CR 1202, over the Right Fork of Little Blaine Creek, 0.38 miles west of Ash Branch Road (CR 1161). Mountain Enterprises was awarded the low bid contract in the amount of $453,863.51.

The contractor has been on site preparing the box culvert for installation. The contract calls for the road to be closed for 15 calendar days to finish installation and paving. Work to finish the project can be done afterwards with the roadway open to traffic.

Once it is built, the bridge becomes the property of the Lawrence County Fiscal Court, which will be responsible for maintenance of the structure.
