A lot of new laws go into effect today in the Commonwealth. Among those is one of interested to vehicle owners. HB 74 only allows white light to be emitted from motor vehicle headlamps, although non-halogen headlamps will be allowed to emit a slight blue tint if they were factory-installed. The intent of the bill is to make it easier for motorist to distinguish emergency vehicles from other vehicles. You've probably seen cars on the road with colored headlights. As of today those are illegal.


Congratulations to our own Officer Joel Shepherd for receiving the Kentucky School Resource Officer of the Year award.

FROM THE KENTUCKY TRANSPORTATION CABINET - - FULL VERSION WITH MAPS CAN BE FOUND AT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 19, 2017 ROUTINE MAINTENANCE WILL BEGIN ON THE BRENT SPENCE BRIDGE FRIDAY, JUNE 23 Project team announces lane closures, changes in traf fic patterns, and encourages public to plan their drive and use caution when traveling through work zones (Covington, KY - June 19, 2017) The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) today announced that routine maintenance will take place on the Brent Spence Bridge, beginning Friday, June 23, at 9 pm, weather permitting. Significant impacts to traffic on the bridge and on routes to get around the bridge are expected for approximately two months. KYTC is managing the project, which is part of an ongoing program to maintain and improve the condition of the regional transportation network. Maintenance work will take place in three coordinated phases The Brent Spence Bridge is a major thoroughfare for both local and national traffic, connecting two states that are critical to the movement of people, goods and services. The bridge carries 1-71 and 1-75 traffic over the Ohio River and has four lanes of traffic on each of the upper and lower decks. Maintenance work will take place in three phases, with two lanes on each deck closed at a time, beginning with the two easternmost lanes, moving across to the two middle lanes and ending with work in the two westernmost lanes. Each phase will take approximately 15-20 days, weather permitting. Some temporary overnight lane closures after this two-month period will continue for another three months. Beginning on June 23, at 9 pm, traffic will be reduced to one lane for a period of time over the weekend as traffic barriers are put into place. Barrier placement will start on the southbound (upper) deck, then crews will move to the northbound (lower) deck. Two lanes will be open in both directions and the traffic pattern for the first phase of work will be in place no later than Monday morning rush hour. In addition to the lane closures on the bridge, there also will be several ramp closures affecting access to the bridge. The following ramps will be closed at 9 pm, on Friday, June 23, for approximately two months. In Ohio: • The ramp to 1-71 South from Fort Washington Way • The ramp to 1-71 South from Third Street In Kentucky: • The ramp from Fourth Street in Covington to 1-71/1-75 North • The ramp from 1-71/1-75 South to Erlanger/KY 236 Crews will replace the concrete surface on the bridge, upgrade the lighting and drainage systems, repair steelwork and complete other general maintenance tasks. Some short-term ramp closures will be scheduled on weekends In order to complete maintenance work on ramps that provide access to and from the bridge, additional closures will be scheduled on a short-term basis over weekends. Up-to-date information will be posted on as these closures are scheduled. Weather permitting, the first temporary closures are anticipated for June 30 at 9 pm and would last approximately two days. In Ohio, these temporary closures for the weekend of June 30 would include: • The ramp from 1-75 North to US SO West • The ramp from 1-75 North to Fifth Street • The ramp from US 50 East to 1-75 South Work contract structured to ensure timely completion Bob Yeager, Chief District Engineer for KYTC in Covington, underscored the importance of the bridge for both local and national travel and said that KYTC has taken a unique approach to this work to ensure timely completion. "Typically, a maintenance project of this size and scope would have significant impacts over the course of an entire construction season," said Yeager. "Recognizing the important connection the Brent Spence provides for many who travel to and through the Greater Cincinnati area, we structured our contract with Hall Contracting of Kentucky, Inc.,to complete this maintenance work as efficiently as possible. Working in two of the four lanes on both decks around the clock will allow us to maintain reduced traffic on the bridge as maintenance work progresses and restore the full movement of traffic as quickly as we can." Yeager also noted that the Brent Spence Bridge was built to support approximately 80-100,000 vehicles per day; currently, it carries twice that volume. "The bridge is inspected annually and is structurally-sound, remaining viable for long-term use," said Yeager. "Discussions regarding construction of a new bridge, which would add capacity to our regional transportation network, are unrelated to this maintenance project and based on current plans, the existing bridge will continue to be operational whether or not a new bridge is built." Plan your drive, know your lane and drive safely KYTC officials encourage the public to become informed about the impacts that maintenance work will have on traffic by visiting to learn more about the project schedule and other project information. "Before getting on the road, drivers should plan their route and when possible use alternate routes to get around the bridge," said Yeager. Traffic information will be provided on project social media channels. In addition, drivers can consult various travel advisory services, including WAZE and OHGO, and should pay particular attention to the digital signage around the region, which monitors traffic information and provides travel times to various destinations. Project leaders also asked the public to pack their patience when they get behind the wheel. "As always, drivers should use caution, slow down and eliminate distractions when traveling through active work zones," said Yeager. "We hope the public will be our partner in this work. We've done the planning, now we'll do the work; we need the public to do their part and help us get through this project by being patient with the additional time lane closures will cause and by being courteous to fellow drivers on the road."
