Three significant road construction projects will slow traffic in Todd County for a while.
The most extensive project is on Pilot Road Road just east of the Christian County line, where a sink hole closed one lane of traffic earlier this spring. The Kentucky Highway Department says a barrier wall will be installed along the slide area that's been closed several weeks and the compromised area will then be reinforced with new rock.
One lane of traffic will continue to be open and temporary traffic signals will remain in place. The project is expected to take about six weeks and motorists are urged to use caution in that area.
Meanwhile, milling and resurfacing work was set to begin next Tuesday night and continue for about a week on the Elkton Public Square. That work is expected to last for about a week and will require traffic restrictions and flag men directing motorists.
A portion of U.S. 41 in downtown Guthrie will also be resurfaced in the coming days, beginning at the stop sign turning toward downtown. The Guthrie portion of the project is expected to last about two days.
