Bypass work under way

FLEMINGSBURG - Work has started on an $8.6 million road project to extend the Flemingsburg Bypass. Gov. Steve Beshear said in a news release the project will improve traffic and safety by providing an alternate travel route for commercial and through traffic on Ky. 11 and Ky. 57.

Initial work will not affect traffic, but impacts are expected by mid- to late March at the Ky. 11 and Cherry Grove Road intersections. Flemingsburg Mayor Marty Voiers believes the bypass project will expand the city.
