On Monday, June 18, K-9 will be closed at the US-77 junction for intersection reconstruction work. This intersection reconstruction work is part of the US-77 Big Blue River bridge replacement project in Marshall County.
Beginning on Monday, June 18 at 4:00 p.m. through early September 2012, northbound and southbound K-9 will be closed from the city of Frankfort to the US-77 junction to ALL through traffic. Access will be maintained for local traffic only on the closed portion of K-9. A 48-mile marked detour on state highways will be provided.
Advance message boards will alert drivers to the K-9 roadway closure. Drivers must use alternate routes during the roadway closure.
The new US-77 Bridge is scheduled to open to all traffic in mid-September 2012. The old bridge is scheduled to be demolished in November 2012. Overall project work is scheduled to be completed in late December 2012, weather permitting.
