Embankment repair work is currently taking place on KY 1427 in Floyd County. Due to the repair work, Abbott Creek Road is currently closed at mile point 6.8. The site is about 2.3 miles from US 23, where temporary traffic signals have been keeping one lane open since January 2, 2019. Highway District 12 EIT Brittany Ball said the road will be closed from 8:15am until 6pm each day so that the state highway department’s contractor can fix the embankment failure at the site. School traffic will be accommodated as needed when school lets out. Work is expected to take between two and three days to finish, depending on weather conditions.
