Pikeville bypass remains closed; geotech engineers to evaluate highwall
PIKE COUNTY – March 12, 2012 – Although the rockfall has been cleared, KY 1426, Bypass Road, in Pikeville remains closed to all traffic.
This section of roadway will remain closed until the Department of Highways has had time to evaluate different avenues. They ask the public to partner with them by staying out of the area and to be patient with us during this time.”
They suggested that people who use the sidewalk along Bypass road for walking or running also avoid the area. “It will be more inconvenient for people on foot. The detour is a long way around for those folks, and no kind of barricade will prevent foot traffic, so we are asking walkers and runners to observe the road closure voluntarily. Consider the risk, and plan another route.”
The University of Pikeville Alumni Association will host Israeli archaeologist Gabriel Barkay, Ph.D., to speak about the Temple Mount Sifting Project on Thursday, April 30, at 7 p.m., in Booth Auditorium, Record Memorial Building, level 5.
