  • KY 1274 in Menifee County to be closed for rockfall mitigation project

    If traveling KY 1274 in Menifee County that runs east and south of Cave Run Lake to Frenchburg, be aware that the road will be closed between mile markers 8 and 9 for 60 days beginning January 6.

    According to a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet news release, a rockfall mitigation project is required between Big Woods Road and Longbow Boat Ramp. Local traffic will be detoured via a signed route consisting of KY 36, US 460 and KY 1693. The project will be completed in early March.

    Motorists who use KY 1274 to connect with KY 801 or KY 519 in Rowan County as a through route from Frenchburg to Morehead may prefer to use an unmarked detour via KY 36, KY 211 and US 60 through Salt Lick to Farmers and Morehead.
