UPDATE: According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, additional time is needed to finish this project, and work is expected to be ongoing through this week (July 30-Aug. 3) as well.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recently announced that a road closure will take place on KY 1798 (Stoner Creek Road) for repairs beginning on Monday, July 23 and lasting through Friday, July 27. 

The closure will affect the stretch of road between Sullivan Road and Old Stoner Creek Road, approximately a half-mile stretch. 

Up to Sullivan school will be accessible from the Acton end of Stoner Creek from KY 70, according to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 4 Public Information Officer Chris Jessie. 

Motorists will be able to access up to Old Stoner Creek Road from KY 70 about a mile before the county line, according to Jessie. 

There is not a place for large trucks to turn around, so it is important for motorists to pay attention to signage alerting them of the road closure.
