Crews are set to begin construction this week on KY 90 in Wayne County starting at mile point 9 (Hospital Street) and ending at mile point 13 (Tate Drive).

Kay & Kay Contracting, LLC was awarded the project for $4.46 million. The project will consist of constructing left and right turn lanes from KY 90 onto Worsham Lane. A center left/right turn lane will be installed beginning at the intersection of KY 92 and ending at the intersection of KY 90/KY 1275.
