The intersection of KY 7 and KY 1161 in Morgan County will be closed beginning Monday, January 8, 2018. A safety improvement project on KY 7 at Pomp in Morgan County will result in a long-term road closure beginning January 8, 2018. The road will be closed until late July or early August to realign a curve near the KY 1161 intersection. This will impact traffic between West Liberty and Sandy Hook. This will also result in the closure of KY 1161 at this location. Signed detours will be established. KY 7 traffic will be rerouted via KY 519 and Billy D. Riggsby Road, also known as Hot Mix Road or Old KY 519. All KY 1161 traffic will be required to use KY 172 via US 460 through downtown West Liberty.
