Drivers who use KY 1571 in Estill County will need to find another route on Wednesday, May 22, so repairs can be made to the deck of a one-lane bridge. This will impact travel between Beattyville and Irvine.
The road will be closed at milepoint 0.4, which is the one-lane bridge over Cow Creek just east of Ravenna. In case of inclement weather, the work will be postponed until Wednesday, May 29.
No marked detour will be posted, but drivers can use KY 52 as an alternate route. Electronic message boards will be posted to inform motorists of the closure. Drivers should plan their trips accordingly and allow extra travel time.
