Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Closes Section of Gunpowder Road to Thru Traffic

A section of KY 237 (Gunpowder Road) between U.S. 42 and KY 536 (Mt. Zion Road) in Boone County will be closed on Monday, July 12, until further notice by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

The cabinet is evaluating the affected portion of the KY 237 corridor for improvements as part of the regional transportation network. Inspection of a drainage structure along the corridor determined that further evaluation is necessary to appropriately update the posted weight limit of the structure.

KY 237 (Gunpowder Road) will remain accessible for local traffic from both U.S. 42 and KY 536 but is closed to through traffic just south of Sunnybrook Drive.  Recommended detour routes will be signed.  

Approximately 4,500 vehicles per day use this section of KY 237, which connects KY 536 and U.S. 42 in Florence.
