Milling and paving work on Richmond Road starts Wednesday

LEXINGTON (August 8, 2017) — Temporary lane closures of Richmond Road/East Main Street between Holiday Road/Chinoe Road and Midland Avenue/US 60 will be in effect Wednesday, August 9, through Friday, August 11, to allow for milling and paving work.

  • Work on the left outbound lane (leaving downtown) will take place between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Work on the left inbound lane (leading downtown) will take place between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Work on the other lanes will be done later.

Milling and paving will also take place in the median crossovers between Holiday Road/Chinoe Road and Mentelle Park. The crossovers will be closed to traffic while the milling and paving work is being done. All of the work is subject to weather conditions.

Motorists should expect delays and seek alternate routes if possible. The city’s Division of Traffic Engineering will continue to monitor traffic impacts and adjust signal timing to mitigate the lane closures.
