Detour for southbound KY 213 traffic in Stanton begins Monday, April 11 to last one month


Southbound drivers who use KY 213 (North Main Street) through the ongoing construction project in Stanton will need to plan for an extended road closure and detour beginning Monday, April 11.

As work progresses on the project to widen KY 213 in Stanton and build a new Red River crossing north of town, storm sewer work will require one lane of traffic on North Main Street to be closed. A signed detour routed along KY 2026 (Maple Street), KY 2073 (Halls Lane), and KY 11/KY 15 (West College Avenue) will be posted.

Local traffic can also use city streets to bypass the closed southbound lane. The closure affects only southbound KY 213 traffic. Northbound traffic can continue to use the road, but delays are possible. Drivers should reduce speed through the work zone and be on the lookout for flaggers, workers, equipment, and rough pavement. The closure is expected to last around one month. Weather conditions may impact the construction’s progress and delay the reopening of southbound KY 213.
