The contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet closed the intersection of KY 473/Gage Road and Mosstown Road (CR 1127) north of the Gage community in southeastern Ballard County on Monday. This closure at KY 473/Gage Road mile point 1.7 is to allow the intersection with Mosstown Road (CR 1127) to be reconfigured from a Y intersection to a T intersection to improve safety and traffic flow. Due to the grade and drain work required for the project, this closure of both KY 473/Gage Road and Mosstown Road at the intersection is expected to remain in place for about 3 months. The Buchanan Road intersection just to the east of the KY 473/Gage Road intersection with Mosstown Road will remain open and provides an alternate route. KY 473/Gage Road and Mosstown Road will both be closed at this worksite. This closure is expected to be in place until about December 1, 2019.
