Temporary signals will be install and have traffic down to one lane across the bridges during working hours, the signals will be removed and traffic restored to normal outside of working hours.

Construction of the Tompkinsville Bypass will continue. Folks in the community will notice signs placed in advance of the construction zones.

Notice will be given as these impacts happen throughout the course of the project. Cloyd Road has been closed to through traffic indefinitely.
