The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 Superintendent Colby Criswell announced maintenance activities in Owen County through Friday.

Crews will continue working with FEMA contractors removing trees and brush on state routes in Owen County.  Motorists are urged to watch for flaggers, lane closures and equipment.

If you have a pothole to report on a state route, you can call Owen County Maintenance at (502)484-2227 or you can call a toll free direct line to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to report potholes or other problems on all state-maintained highways.  The number is (800)PATCH IT or (800)728-2448.

Maintenance activities are scheduled on a tentative basis and are subject to change depending on weather conditions, emergencies and other factors beyond the control of the department of highways.

Motorists are urged to use caution in work areas, and to be alert for flaggers, workers’ equipment that may block a portion of the roadway, and other items of concern in work-zone speed limits where applicable.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 maintains nearly 492 lane miles of highways in Owen County.
