In spite of the recent winter storm, the intersection of U.S. 68/Ky. 80 and U.S. 68/Ky. 80-Business could see a fully functional traffic light before Christmas.

“Based on the pace of work, we would expect it to be activated sometime before Christmas, weather permitting,” said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokesman Keith Todd. “The last two words are the key.”

Earlier this year, KyTC officials conducted a traffic flow study of the intersection starting in early August, after the study was requested by city and county officials.

There will be a 10-day notice before the light is activated, and it will flash yellow for about a week before it is fully functional to give motorists time to be familiar with the new signal, said Todd. He went on to say that specific dates should be announced soon.

“Once a power source has been provided to the site, it will take about a week for our electricians to connect everything,” said Todd.
