  • Filling the gaps

    “Voids” are being filled in the approaches to the new bridge spanning CSX Railroad on U.S. 27 North. According to workers, the voids have been caused by the new bridge settling into the permanent position. US 27 shut down to one lane for bridge and embankment work on the Cynthiana Viaduct June 4. The lane closure will be controlled using temporary traffic signals. This work will be ongoing for approximately four weeks.
