Another section of Route 680 – the Harold to Minnie Connector – is expected to open for traffic soon, perhaps as early as the end of next week.

According to Darold Slone, PE, Project Delivery and Preservation Branch Manager at Highway District 12 of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the section that extends the new road to the temporary tie-in with Route 979 at Branham’s Creek could open as soon as Friday, June 21.

At the same time, Route 979 from the construction site of the new bridge at Branham’s Creek to the Branham’s Creek intersection will be closed to all traffic to allow completion of work in that area.
