Rising Star Road Pipe Work – Traffic Impacts
The Fayette County Public Works Department has replaced 10 storm pipes under Rising Star Road. Between October 17th and October 31st, road work continues on Rising Star Road and will include shoulder work, installation of end-walls, and other work needed to prep for resurfacing.
Drivers should expect minor delays. To minimize driver impacts, we are focusing major work activities between the hours of 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM. In addition, one-lane road closures will be used.
The concrete end-walls will be added at select pipe crossings to widen the shoulder and minimize erosion. Rising Star Road will be resurfaced with asphalt once all other work is complete.
