The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to have a lane closure on U.S. 119 (milepoint 0.1) in Bell County on May 16, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Traffic will be reduced from two lanes to one lane in the southbound direction (back into Pineville from Harlan). The lane closure will allow crews to perform a detailed inspection of the bridge structure. Engineers will be using a Snooper Truck to access the deck substructure on the bridge.

Motorists are advised to use caution during this period and be aware of signage, road crews and other drivers. The work is dependent on weather conditions.
