JOHNSON COUNTY – June 3, 2022, 2022 – The proposed embankment repairs to be performed by Hinkle Environmental Services LLC, along KY 172 between mile points 2.40 and 10.22 in Johnson County have been rescheduled to begin on Tuesday, June 7th, 2022. The proposed repairs include the repair of 12 embankment failures that developed during two previously declared disasters.

Work is still projected to take approx. 4 to 5 weeks to finish and will consist of drilling vertical steel rails and using horizontal cribbing material to stabilize the roadway. Large equipment will be required to do this work, which will restrict the roadway widths during construction, because of this, traffic will be reduced to one lane. However, in areas where the roadway widths are too narrow, traffic will be stopped periodically. Expect delays between the hours of 7:00am and 7:00pm Monday through Friday.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Contractors understands the inconvenience to the public these repairs may cause, and we will do our best to limit delays. As always, slow down and use extra precaution when traveling in a construction zone.
