JOHNSON COUNTY – June 8, 2012 – KY 3391, Hammond-Whitehouse Road, which connects KY 40 to KY 581 in Johnson County, will close Monday morning, June 11, and could remain closed for as long as two weeks, according to Tim Spencer, an engineer with Highway District 12’s Paintsville Section Office.

“We are aware that this may cause some temporary inconvenience for folks,” Spencer said, “but we hope that everyone will be patient and understand that we are working to make the roadway safer. We do not intend to disrupt traffic any more days than necessary and, if weather conditions and other factors remain favorable, we may be able to finish in less than 10 working days. We certainly will if we can!”
