JACKSON — In order to replace a damaged drainage pipe, the Kentucky Department of Highways plans to close KY 2022 (Squabble Creek Road) in Perry County on Saturday, Nov. 21. The road will be closed at milepoint 1.0, just north of the Owsley County line in the Upper Squabble community. The project will begin around 8:30 a.m. and will continue until approximately 4 p.m. During this time, the road will be closed to all through traffic.
No marked detour will be posted. Drivers will need to detour through Owsley, Clay and Leslie counties via KY 484, KY 1428, US 421, KY 118, the Hal Rogers Parkway and KY 15 to reach Hazard via Hyden. Another alternative route to Buckhorn, through Clay, Owsley and Breathitt counties, involves KY 484, KY 1482, KY 66, KY 11 and KY 28 via Oneida and Booneville. Motorists should plan their trips accordingly, as a lengthy alternate route will be required.
Provisions will be made should emergency vehicles need access to the area.
Approximately 175 vehicles use this section of KY 2022 each day.
