Motorists should be aware that the Kentucky Department of Transportation Livingston County Maintenance Crew is planning a mobile work zone for pothole patching along US 60 on Thursday and Friday.
District 1 spokesman Keith Todd said the mobile road pothole patch caravan will operate all of U.S. 60 at the 29 Mile Marker near Salem, from the Ledbetter Bridge to the Livingston-Crittenden County Line. increase.
Motorists should be aware of single-lane traffic whose flow is alternately controlled by traffic lights. Todd indicates that there may be some delays during the movement and placement of the equipment to facilitate the work.
According to Todd, recent very low temperatures combined with temperature fluctuations in the ’50s provided ideal conditions for the potholes to form. Some recently paved sections have held up to temperature fluctuations very well from US 60 to Livingston County, but he says there are quite a few potholes that require attention.
Additional regional highway crews will begin work on the pothole patches over the next week or two, weather permitting, Todd said. He urges motorists to pay attention to these extensive mobile operations.
