REPAIR WORK CLOSES KY 3394 (CAINS CREEK) IN LAWRENCE COUNTY TOMORROW, FRIDAY, AUGUST 10, FOR DRAINAGE PIPE REPLACEMENTS

 

 

LAWRENCE COUNTY (Thursday, August 9, 2018) – Highway District 12’s Lawrence County Maintenance Crew will replace two drainage structures on KY 3394, Cains Creek, near Steel Branch at mile points 2.2 and 2.5 tomorrow, Friday, August 10.

 

Work will start at 8:30 in the morning and will be finished by about 2 p.m. There will be long traffic delays while this work is under way. Motorists may want to find another route to use.

Todd Moran, Lawrence County superintendent, said these pipes are bad and causing the road to drop. When they are replaced, not only will the drainage be better, but the road surface will also be safer.

The age range of the bicycle riders was from 5 yrs old to over 65 years old proving that bicycling is an exercise for all ages!

The high temperatures may have played a role in the small crowd that gathered for the “Back to School Bike Bash” but that didn’t stop the crew from having a great ride.

Hayden Bowen, a kindergartener from Fallsburg Elementary School, was the only school-age participant! The age range of the bicycle riders was from 5 yrs old to over 65 years old proving that bicycling is an exercise for all ages!

At the suggestion of a few of the riders, the bike ride expanded to a full 10-mile ride taking in parts of Fort Gay, WV as well as Louisa. Hayden, the 5 yr-old, hung with the crowd for almost 2 miles!

The next Trail Town activities will be a Kayak and Short Hike on Sunday, August 19th at 2:00 PM at the Primitive Campground at Lawrence County Campground (PLEASE NOTE TIME CHANGE!).

The next bike ride is scheduled for Sunday, September 2nd at 3 pm at Louisa Main Street Park.

Please check out the Louisa/Lawrence County Trail Town Committee FaceBook Page for more information on all Trail Town activities.
