Road celebration today in Morehead
MOREHEAD - Sen. Walter Blevins and Rep. Rocky Adkins, both D-Sandy Hook, and Rep. John Will Stacy, D-West Liberty, said they are looking forward to today’s dedication of the improved Flemingsburg Road in Morehead.
“The people in Morehead have needed improvements along this congested section of road for a long time,” said Blevins, who said the project began approximately five years ago.
“It’s particularly exciting to have it finished before the start of the school year. These changes will make the road safer for the children who attend class in schools located off Ky. 32.”
McBrayer Elementary, Rowan County Senior High and the Rowan campus of Maysville Community and Technical College are near the road improvements.
“This project will have a tremendous impact on the traffic control and safety in Rowan County,” said Rowan County Judge-Executive Clyde Thomas, D-Morehead. “Several lives will be saved with the improvements.”
The project involved widening a 1.6-mile stretch of road. The now five-lane road includes a center turn lane. Construction began in 2005 and cost $7.5 million.
Dedication ceremonies will be at 9 a.m. at Zane Collins Memorial Park in Morehead. Kentucky Cabinet Secretary Robbie Rudolph is expected to be in attendance.
