LEXINGTON – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises motorists of intersection improvements scheduled for Scott County. The project was awarded to Nally & Gibson Georgetown LLC DBA for $965,567.41. The project is located along McClelland Circle/US 62 between milepoints 5.943 & 7.693

The work will include the construction of a restricted crossing U-Turn, often referred to as an RCUT intersection. The intersection is a design that restricts left turns at an intersection, but allows the same movement downstream by way of a U-Turn. The RCUT is a method of conflict point management.

Hamilton & Hinkle began work on Monday. This project is part of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).

Monday, May 11 through Monday, August 31 – 7 a.m. Monday until 7 a.m. Monday

McClelland Circle/US 62 – the intersection of US 62 and Hemingway Place

• Phase 1 of construction will require the right/slow lanes to be closed

• Traffic for the right/slow lanes will be shifted over to the left/fast lanes in both directions

• Signage will be in place to guide and direct motorists 

All work, and closures are scheduled on a tentative basis, and subject to change depending on weather, emergencies, and other factors beyond the control of the Department of Highways.
