District-wide Paint Striping Starts This Week in Johnson County
HIGHWAY DISTRICT 12, KY (June 19, 2023) Motorists in Johnson, Floyd, Lawrence, Martin, Pike, Letcher, and Knott counties can expect a slow-moving truck and equipment caravan as district-wide paint striping begins this week. Crews will begin painting yellow and white lines along state routes over the next six to eight weeks.
Motorists can expect short delays on bridges, narrow roadways, and slow-moving traffic from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Crews will move at 10-12mph while striping so that paint can fully coat and adhere to the roadways. The contractor will make frequent stops to allow traffic to pass safely.
Drivers are advised to pay close attention to signage and slow down when passing the moving work zone.
Oglesby Construction has been contracted to perform the work. Work is subject to change based on weather conditions.
